EPICC: Education, Passions, Insight, Career, Community
At EPICC, the only national community for clinical social work grad students, you get help with many things: writing papers (great content in our clinical e-books), scholarships, connecting with students at other schools, social media, and access to the universe of clinical social work practice and licensure.
EPICC is not-for-profit and sponsored by the practitioners of the American Clinical Social Work Association (ACSWA). Let us help you get the best understanding of what goes into a clinical social work career, and the best support as you move through school onto a well-marked pathway into the profession.
