On March 8, I presented about the Camden Coalition’s Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative at the National Academies of Practice annual forum in Pentagon City, VA. This year’s forum focused on the National Academies of Practice advocacy efforts for interprofessional collaboration, interprofessional practice models for population health, and person-centered quality healthcare.  

Our Student Hotspotting program is also grounded in the priorities of interprofessional collaboration and person-centered care. Since 2014, our program has trained hundreds of professional students around the country to work in interdisciplinary teams that connect individuals with complex health and social needs with the care and support they need. The program has continued to scale up over the years with a growing number of participating institutions. Most recently, our Student Hotspotting program has shifted to a hub and spokes design to expand the program’s reach in providing teaching and training in the complex care field.

The presentation focused on Camden Coalition’s national efforts to provide complex care training to professional students from a variety of disciplines from across the country. The talk highlighted evaluation findings about our students’ experiences, and how the program has prepared students to work with patients with complex health and social needs through a patient-centered approach. I shared some of the lessons learned in our first year of scaling up the program and how we are addressing those challenges.

The annual Student Hotspotting program is now accepting applications. The final deadline to apply is May 31, 2019. To learn more, visit
