Career Exploration Resources - Departments & Programs, Programs and Initiatives, Allied Health Education and Career Pathways


Due to limited capacity the Allied Health Education and Career Pathways (AHECP) Department is not able to provide one-on-one career counseling. We do want to provide assistance to you as you explore opportunities for additional education or advancement in your career. The following is a list of resources and information available to you through Human Resources to assist you in this process.

Career Change and Education/Training

If you are interested in making a career change that would involve going back to school, there is detailed information posted on the Health Occupations and Professions Explorations (HOPE) website regarding over 50 specific careers in health care, including information about workforce growth projections, required education and additional professional opportunities

Please note that the AHECP office has no oversight to influence your ability to secure tuition reimbursement or other financial support for college. All decisions regarding tuition reimbursement are made in accordance with UW Hospitals and Clinics and UW Medical Foundation’s current tuition reimbursement policies, and must be approved by an employee’s manager or director.

For more information regarding Tuition Reimbursement, please review UW Health’s Tuition Reimbursement page.

UW Health Career Opportunities

If you are interested in new opportunities within UW Health, you are encouraged to visit the careers page through your employee Taleo log in. As you consider application to a new position, thoroughly review minimum, required and preferred qualifications to help you determine which positions are best suited for you.

Interviewing and Resume Tips

For questions about finding resume and interviewing skills in order to transfer to other opportunities within UW Health, the Learning and Development area currently offers two courses, CEO of Your Career Part 1 and CEO of Your Career Part 2. Please review the L&D Course Catalog and visit the Learning and Development department page to find more information on how to enroll in these courses.

Additional resources are available to you, specific to Interview and Resume Tips.

Please note that an employee’s ability to use paid time to take Learning and Development courses must be aligned with the requirements set out in the UW Health policy and be sanctioned and approved by the employee’s manager.
