VKC UCEDD faculty and staff help train university students, practicing professionals and direct care providers, individuals with disabilities and family members, disability advocates and policy makers. Training is varied. It includes classes in degree programs, supervised clinical experiences, continuing education, conferences, workshops, and technical assistance. UCEDD training is done in close collaboration with the Vanderbilt LEND training program. UCEDD and LEND trainees are mentored to become leaders in the disabilities field. We strive to integrate service, training, research, and dissemination across all UCEDD projects.
UCEDD Trainees are Vanderbilt students working with VKC-affiliated faculty members who serve as mentors. Programs are individualized to provide Trainees with experience in disability-related research, training, services, or dissemination.
