The world of health professions and its future is vast. As a Western Governors University alum, we wish to help you put your degree to use. We have organized this online community to assist you in continuing your professional development, hone your career-searching abilities, and develop networking opportunities. Whether it's by finding the right job, earning a promotion, or helping other WGU alumni, an active community with quality resources can enhance your experience going forward.

Many of you are currently employed or already hold a satisfying position in health professions. However, it is always good practice to keep yourself informed, educated, and up-to-date. This applies to both undergraduate and master's degree holders.

These communities and resources provide you with opportunities to create lasting relationships with students, alumni, and friends of WGU. Make sure to participate in the blogs and keep an eye on the career services area for updates. We value your involvement and input, and welcome your participation and contributions.

We offer you the following resources to assist with continued professional development, self-improvement, and research.


Mentoring is a large part of WGU, and this service extends to you even after graduation.
