Werner-Lin lead design of the Penn Advanced Certificate in Oncology Social Work program to teach practicing social workers address, and keep up with, the emotional needs, treatment, financial issues, family dynamics, and other matters surrounding cancer care. The program is geared toward social workers who have completed a master’s program and are now looking to advance their careers, specialize in oncology, or move into oncology from other health settings. Bach further highlighted the career advancement opportunities that the Penn Advanced Certificate in Oncology Social Work offers to learners, noting that the program ends with a capstone or demonstration project that students can take back to their place of work to elevate their practice, grow programmatic offerings, and help their own career development and growth. over, in the second month of the program, students learn program development, as well as administration supervising and teaching. Bach and Werner-Lin are hopeful that individuals from the cohort will go on to become field instructors for MSW students at SP2 or for social work programs in their own geographic regions, thereby giving back to the community of learners.
