With AUCD member programs in every state and territory, our trainees have an incredibly powerful collective reach. The Virtual Trainee works remotely from his/her home Center or Program for one academic year to build and enhance a network among trainees across all 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs) and 43 Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) programs.

This is an exciting opportunity for a current trainee to develop their leadership and communication skills, promote the meaningful exchange of information about issues related to people with disabilities and special health needs, and become more familiar with the broader AUCD network while having a national impact on the disability field. Learn about former Virtual Trainees and their experiences

The Virtual trainee is expected to spend approximately 4 to 5 hours per week on position-related tasks, not including event travel, and will receive ongoing supervision from AUCD Central Office staff.  AUCD will provide a stipend of $1000 for each semester (paid to the individual or program based on Center policies), as well as fund all appropriate travel costs (registration, transportation, lodging, etc.) associated with attending the Fall AUCD Conference and the Spring Disability Policy Seminar; both events are held in Washington, D.C.
