Event description

Description

Come join us for 2 full days (Friday April 13th and Saturday April 14th) of the Medical Social Work Intensive offering education and guidance from some of the leaders in the field! The Intensive is designed to be a unique opportunity for social workers interested in medical settings to come together to learn new skills and celebrate the profession. The Intensive was originally created for people new to medical social work, either new graduates or those considering a career transition. We have since heard from experienced medical social work practitioners that the Intensive is a valuable and energizing experience, helping social workers refocus the work they already do on a daily basis.
