Health Care Social Work

New technologies, novel models of collaborative care, and a renewed emphasis in health systems and social issues are revolutionizing healthcare education across the country. At UT Austin, the Steve Hicks School of Social Work is an integral part of this revolution.

The certificate in Health Care Social Work prepares master’s students in both the Clinical and APP concentrations to be health care social work practitioners in diverse health and wellness settings, including integrated health and preventative health care programs. Course work emphasizes culturally appropriate practice, leadership, advocacy and policy; and is grounded in interprofessional education and interprofessional collaboration.
