The SWCAHEC Pre-Healthcare Career Portfolio
The SWCAHEC Pre-Healthcare Career Portfolio contains some of the skills that are essential to pursuing a career in healthcare. Participants will be responsible for tracking their progress toward these skills by recording events, coursework, and other learning experiences in this portfolio. SWCAHEC will have resources online including recorded workshops and links to related resources and content that will contribute to the completion of the portfolio. Participants are also welcome at all appropriate SWCAHEC trainings and workshops and staff will connect participants with resources in the community that would build their portfolios.
