Empowering students and alumni to be active agents in their own ‘becoming’

IHP’s Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) partners with all students and alumni to help them integrate their skills, training, and education into lives of meaning, purpose, and service. We seek to empower you to identify, enhance and accomplish your professional development, job search and educational goals as you transition from student to healthcare professional.

Whether your ultimate goal is a job, career, or vocation, the CCPD will support on your journey. We believe that having a “good job” and “doing what you love” are not mutually exclusive.

In conjunction with all academic programs, we prepare you for your career journey before and after graduation by providing personalized coaching, programming and resources for:

  • Resume & Cover Letter Writing
  • Writing Skills
  • Interview Preparation / Mock Interview Sessions
  • Networking
  • International Student Advising
  • Global Travel Experiences
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Resiliency
  • Leadership Development
  • Job Search Strategy
  • Online Brand Optimization
