At UVA Community Health, we believe in the power of education and training. Education equips individuals with knowledge and skills, while training hones those skills for practical application. Together, they empower individuals to achieve their goals, contribute to society, and adapt to an ever-changing world.
This belief in education and training is the cornerstone of lifelong learning and progress. Whether you are seeking an opportunity to explore different careers throughout our facilities or experiential learning hours towards a certification or degree, we are here foryou.
Before you begin your experiential learning rotation, you will first need to speak with your school/program to ensure that your school/program has an affiliation agreement on file with UVA Community Health.
If we do not have an affiliation agreement on file, please have your school/program contact firstname.lastname@example.org to initiate the agreement process.
