Mental Health Professions: Social Work

Mark Dombeck, Ph.D.

Social Workers serve the healthcare industry in two primary capacities.  First, as patient advocates helping to connect patients to local resources, and second, as psychotherapists. Social Workers working in the healthcare arena are generally licensed by the state, territory or province they work in. Prior to licensure, they have (at a minimum) completed a masters-level graduate course of study in Social Work, and an additional year or so of on-site internship where they work full-time in a clinical or hospital setting under the supervision of licensed healthcare professionals.
