Showcase your leadership

Each year at the annual Center for Health Administration and Aging Services Excellence (CHAASE) Spring Banquet, each of the HCAD practicum students present on one of their three leadership projects. These projects fall into three categories: Internal Operations, Customer Service, and External Relationships. The students demonstrate via posters how they selected a challenge to tackle at their site, planned the measuring and implementation of their project, led their team throughout the project, and developed recommendations for future success.

Below, we've included samples of leadership project posters for each category, plus the posters that have been nominated and won the Heyde Health Care Entrepreneurial Award. The posters shown here are the finalists and winners of each category from our annual banquet, to give you a taste of the great work HCAD students do every day at their practicum sites to enhance the delivery of care and quality of life for residents. For additional student leadership projects, check out our Facebook page.
