As Kentucky faces a need for more well-trained psychologists, Spalding University has created new opportunities for students to enter the field of health service psychology with an emphasis on providing services to communities most in need. To support this work, Spalding University has been awarded a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Graduate Psychology Education (GPE) program. Their award of nearly $1 million over three years will support the new Integrated C.A.R.E. (Community-based, Accessible, Recovery-oriented Education) Program. Funding will provide stipends for doctoral psychology students to train in integrated, interdisciplinary primary care settings (IIPC).
Beginning this fall, Spalding’s School of Business offers the new graduate concentration in Financial Planning within the MS in Business Communication (MSBC) program. Financial planners work one-on-one with their clients to develop strategies and plans for a secure future. This may include paying off debt, saving for retirement, meeting short-term financial targets, and long-term wealth management.
The Master in Business Communication in Financial Planning provides real-life financial planning skills that can be applied to any industry and working field. Dishant Pandya, Assistant Professor of Economics and Financial Planning, introduces this degree to bring financial planning education to every student, not just finance majors, such as full-time working professionals and those wanting to excel further in their careers.
Congratulations to Tracy Skaggs and Harley Lampton on receiving these prestigious senior awards! Both of these students are shining examples of compassionate, empathetic, and service-oriented leaders in our Spalding community.
Spalding’s Cultivating Personal Resiliency Program (CPRP) uses evidence-based strategies to reduce and address burnout
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a crisis of burnout and mental distress in our healthcare workers, resident physicians, and those training to be healthcare providers. This ongoing crisis has led to a need to enhance the education and training of students going into health related fields by adding instruction on well-being and resiliency. To support these efforts, Spalding University has been awarded a grant over $775,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The grant, awarded through the Public Safety Workforce Resiliency Training Program, will provide funding for resiliency training for healthcare students at Spalding University and the University of Louisville’s School of Dentistry.
Spalding has been awarded a $300,000 grant from the Legacy Foundation of Kentuckiana to fund the creation of a state-of-the-art Anatomy Education Center (AEC) in the new Kosair Charities School of Physical Therapy and Center for Interprofessional Education.
