Description

The ultimate goal of obtaining a graduate health science education is to become competent and successful members of the health community. As the movement for interprofessional education (IPE) continues to gain momentum within the health care community, it is imperative that champions for the cause step forward to provide direction. This responsibility falls not only upon the leaders in health care education, policy, and application, but also on future members of the health care community. It is essential that student and faculty devised IPE collaborations work towards the betterment of not only current patient health care, but the future overall public health.

ATSU – A.T.StillUniversitySchoolof Health Sciences is unique in that aside from its diverse 20 degree programs, it is comprised of campuses inMissouriandArizona. Geographical differences as well as dissimilarities in schedules, curricula and educational foci have made the development of IPE experiences challenging. Addressing these obstacles required an approach formally recognizing the importance of IPE and attempting to create meaningful experiences. Through the development of both academic and social opportunities for students at ATSU, collaboration between the Student Government Association and the Students’ Council on Interprofessional Education has increased program interactions in the hopes of students learning from, with, and about each other. Additionally, student-led recognition and promotion of peer-led efforts has further enriched the IPE experience of ATSU students. Student-led endeavors play an invaluable role in the integration of interprofessional education and collaboration in tomorrow’s health care system.

This session’s will highlight various means through which students can work both with and separate of faculty to incorporate IPE into their educational experience along with promoting student led change within a university. The recognition of existing challenges along with discussion of novel solutions to these obstacles aims to demonstrate how students can serve as proponents to promote, engender and facilitate IPE.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this session, participants will:

1. Discuss common challenges encountered by students attempting to implement IPE across a diverse student body existing at two geographically separate campuses.

2. Identify one novel academic strategy for promoting IPE within the student educational experience.

3. Identify one novel non-academic
