High school students interested in careers in medicine, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training, and social work are invited to Interprofessional Health Care Day at Dominican College on Friday, February 28, 2020.
Biology Professor AnnMarie DelliPizzi, Ph.D., said that the prospective students and current students will learn about health care careers and how different professionals collaborate to coordinate patient care. “Interprofessional collaboration among health care providers is an essential part of improving the accessibility, quality, and value of health care in the United States,” she said. ”Interprofessional collaboration starts in interprofessional education. When health care students receive training on how to work effectively as a team across disciplines, they are primed to collaborate this way in the workplace.”
The event takes place in the Holt Room of the Hennessy Center from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. To register, please visit dc.edu/events/interprofessional-health-care-day-2020/ For additional information, contact Dr. DelliPizzi at 845-848-6009 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
