EPICC: Education, Passions, Insight, Career, Community
EPICC is the only national community for clinical social work graduate students! We try to help solve the mysteries of a clinical social work career and help you navigate while you make your way through graduate school. We offer great content in our e-books, scholarship contests for field placement papers, connections with students at other schools, social media pages, access to advanced practice social workers ready to mentor you, and a pathway 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). Join us and Be EPICC!
