New Elective for MS4: HIV/AIDS Interprofessional Education Program
The HIV/AIDS Interprofessional Education Program is a 4-week special elective offered in March. It is designed to provide learners with the foundational knowledge of HIV prevention and care by preparing them to work in teams to improve health outcomes for people living with HIV/AIDS. This special elective partners learners from medicine, nursing, and pharmacy who participate in interprofessional teamwork and team building activities, HIV/AIDS clinic observation, and simulations. Additionally, learners will apply collaborative leadership practices and evaluate team effectiveness while working in cooperation with those who provide care, others who contribute to or support the delivery of prevention and health services, and most importantly people living with HIV/AIDS.
