Leadership Initiative

Explorations in Collaborative Leadership and InterProfessional Education (ECLIPSE)

Are you a School of Health Sciences student interested in getting involved on campus, standing out as a leader, and building your resume? Join a leadership community to create an impact in purpose for health.

Unique to the School of Health Sciences, the ECLIPSE program is a professional development experience that aims to develop health professionals who impact individuals and populations of people through the power of interprofessional work and collaborative leadership.

Interested? Fill out this Google Form or email shs@oakland.edu.

ECLIPSE is for you
  • Learn professional roles and responsibilities, effective community skills, and the importance of values and teamwork.  
  • Discover your leadership traits through collaboration, self-assessment and reflection, and develop an interprofessional leadership portfolio.
  • Build skills, qualities, and aptitudes that are essential for the workplace.  

ECLIPSE is flexible and works with your schedule so you can engage with the program at your own pace. Through monthly events and continuous reflection, ECLIPSE encourages you to engage in self-discovery and learn more about who you are. ECLIPSE rewards you for what you are already planning on doing (such as getting involved and attending class) as you earn points towards Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum badges. Platinum badge earners, our highest honor, will wear a medallion during their graduation ceremony. The opportunity to earn badges and showcase experiences in your leadership portfolio helps boost your resume as you stand out as a leader on campus.

As a member of ECLIPSE, you are part of a community within the School and can learn from peers and professionals in purpose for health.
