This is a practicum course using a service-learning model in which students apply previous IPE course material in a community health setting to achieve the following goals:

  1. 1. Demonstrate interprofessional collaboration readiness to address population health
  2. 2. Collaborate with a community health or social services agency to improve health or promote wellness among their target population.
Students are grouped into IP teams of five or six and assigned to community agencies that serve vulnerable or underserved groups. In partnership with its designated agency each IP team will identify concerns or needs of the agency related to health promotion or wellness that are relevant to its mission.  The IP team will develop and implement a specific project that addresses an identified need utilizing the knowledge and expertise of each team member based on his/her profession. Tasks and activities to complete the project are agreed upon and implemented in collaboration with the faculty advisor and the site coordinator at the agency. Small group meetings held throughout the semester provide opportunities for students to address the course learning objectives.
