Annual Student Hotspotting program now accepting applications
By Hanna Pedersen
Are you a health professional student or educator? We’re training the next generation of healthcare providers, researchers, and policymakers in complex care through the Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative. The Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative is an annual program that trains interdisciplinary teams of students from schools around the country to apply a patient-centered approach in working with individuals with complex health and social needs. This six-month program will guide interprofessional student teams as they identify and engage high-utilizing patients in their own communities.
Student teams will be supported by one of four regional hubs that operate the Student Hotspotting program for teams within and outside their institutions. In partnership with the Camden Coalition and the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs, each hub is responsible for managing and hosting student teams, and for advancing the field of complex care in their communities. The hub institutions are:
- Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA
- Southern Illinois University in Springfield, IL
- University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT
- Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, CA
Interested participants can apply to the program through our website. The final deadline to apply is May 31, 2019. For additional information, please contact [email protected]. We hope you’ll join the movement!
