In 2010, ACMA created the Social Work Fellowship program to further promote social work in the hospital/clinical setting and raise awareness regarding social work’s key role in Hospital Case Management. The 2010 Fellowship was conducted in partnership with the University of Southern California School of Social Work and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.
The fellowship is a nine-month hospital-based program that includes Hospital Case Management training, project work, multi-hospital exposure, research, professional membership in ACMA, a national conference speaking opportunity, and a case management model comparative study. The 2011 Fellowship will be conducted at NYU Langone Medical Center under the direction of Brenda Ohta, PhD, MSW, MSG, CPHQ, Senior Director of Care Management.
“I am honored and excited to be a part of this unique program. The Fellowship is evidence of ACMA’s commitment to social work practice. It provides a social worker with an excellent opportunity to expand their clinical skill set and enhance their job marketability.”
