Start Date

End Date

Description

The following workshop is designed to address the first of the Conference Learning Objectives: Develop strategies to incorporate interprofessional competencies within education and/or practice.

We will use a service-oriented non-clinical educational initiative to illustrate methods for developing interprofessional competencies and building a multi-institutional, community-based interprofessional program.

The Bridging the Gaps Community Health Internship Program (BTG CHIP) gives interprofessional teams of health and social service students hands-on community-based experiences that are complemented by a didactic core. The program is a multi-institutional effort of eight academic health institution-based programs that work with over 100 community organizations serving disadvantaged populations. A collaborative administrative model provides the foundation for student training. BTG CHIP is built on cooperative interaction between academic health institutions, among health and social service disciplines, and between academic health institutions and their local communities.

Learning Objectives: Participants in this workshop will:

1. Gain concrete strategies for overcoming administrative and curricular barriers to multi-institutional interprofessional training;

2. Learn methods for incorporating collaborative community service into interprofessional training.
