Session Description:

As you get closer to graduation, or if you have recently graduated, you may be thinking… now what? This panel discussion will highlight several non-traditional health IT career options to consider. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will be used as an example to showcase some of these new career options. A case study of a recent graduate at the VA in Madison, WI in a new kind of Health IT position will be featured. Details on how to apply and navigate the complexity of the VA will also be discussed. This impactful webinar is perfect for students with or without a military background, and all early careerists looking to advance their career.

Learning Objectives:

  • Find out how to combine previous military experience with an online Health IT degree to land a job, and see how the VA is expanding these emerging roles nationally
  • Illustrate common questions and concerns that many second career adult learners don’t think of while researching a career
  • Discover the career planning methods and processes the Student Success Coaches at the University of Wisconsin Extended Campus use to help adult learners reach graduation and beyond
