Learner Insights from the Field: Strategies to Support Interprofessional Learning and Practice

Monday, September 18, 2023, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm CDT

Join the leaders of the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative Student Engagement Group (SEG), Teresa Cochran and Heather Miselis, along with a panel of students from institutions across the United States, to learn more about interprofessional student groups and initiatives.

Learning Objectives:  Following the panel discussion, participants will be able to:  

  1. Recognize strategies to initiate an interprofessional student group at your institution
  2. Identify ways to balance interprofessional learning with profession-specific demands
  3. Network with others to learn strategies that support collaborative  student engagement

The panel will discuss questions such as:

  • Student Interprofessional Societies – how did you get groups initiated at your institution?
  • Does your institution have a formal interprofessional education program or curriculum? 
  • What are some examples of interprofessional learning initiatives that your institution hosts? 
  • If you’re involved with research, what is it like to participate in interprofessional research? 
  • How do you balance interprofessional learning initiatives with your profession-specific demands?
  • What resources or incentives does your institution offer to participate in interprofessional learning or practice initiatives within your institution?  
  • What are key points you have learned over the years that allow you to shift from interprofessional learning activities to team-based practice?
  • When you think about mentors, what are characteristics that were important in your professional development – what advice would you give others?
