Interprofessional Education

Semester: Fall

Programs: Medicine and Physician Assistant

Description: Developed in 2016, the Family Medicine program was interested in providing a hand-on learning experience to demonstrate procedures commonly done in family medicine clinics. Medical students (voluntary - 2nd year, 1st semester) and Physician Assistant students (required - 1st year, 3rd semester) are provided a lecture on common dermatology conditions and procedures, and then divide into small groups to practice using various pieces of equipment. Small groups are representative of both programs. Student groups are provided a patient case and are asked to provide recommended treatment options and justification for each recommendation. Interprofessional discussions target comparison of overall academic and post-graduation training and building relationships.
