The UWPPC provides leadership training to health care professionals who are then equipped to not only improve the health of children with respiratory conditions through the provision of coordinated, family-centered care, but also to positively impact changes in the health care system.
Interdisciplinary leadership training is provided for a variety of professional practitioners using pediatric pulmonary care as a clinical model. Upon completion, trainees serve the maternal and child health community both locally and throughout the nation. The curriculum includes didactic courses, practicum experiences in clinical and community settings, participation in public policy activities, education and research.
Stipends are available for qualified long-term trainees in the core disciplines.
