The UA Pediatric Pulmonary Center (PPC) offers traineeships to individuals who have the potential for leadership. In keeping with the priorities of Health People 2020 objectives to increase minority representations in the health professions, minority students are especially encouraged to apply for traineeships.

PPCs provide leadership training to health care professionals who are then equipped to not only improve the health of children with respiratory conditions through the provision of coordinated, family-centered care, but also to positively impact changes in the health care system.

Traineeships are available in:

  • Nursing (300 hours)
  • Nutrition (300 hours)
  • Social Work (300 hours)
