The mission of the Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies (ISIS) is to use cutting edge simulation educational techniques to improve the quality of healthcare education and therefore, patient safety and outcomes. ISIS is affiliated with over 30 departments and programs throughout the UW Medicine, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Pharmacy, and Physician’s Assistant Training Program (MEDEX). We provide a wide range of training in the areas of procedural and patient management skills, interprofessional education, and team communication.
IHI Open School - UW Chapter seeks to promote ways to improve patient safety and quality of care, to recognize the importance of interprofessioanl collaboration in both education and practice, and to provide a venue for networking.
Interprofessional student organizations on University of Washington–Seattle Campus
- Community Health Advancement Program (CHAP)
The CHAP began at the University of Washington in 1980 as an organization created to nurture the ideas and goals of health care students interested in working with medically underserved populations.
- Global Health Group (GHG)
The GHG, formerly the International Health Group (IHG), is a student-run interest group at the University of Washington that promotes long-term careers in the service of disadvantaged populations worldwide. We aim to accomplish this through educational activities and through the development of reciprocal international research and clinical opportunities with our overseas global health partners.
- Students in the Community (SITC)
SITC is an interprofessional group of students at the University of Washington. We maintain the SITC-Aloha Health Outreach Center at Aloha Inn, a transitional housing facility for the homeless in King County. We also organize Patient Education and Health Promotion events and programs (at Aloha Inn, Women's Resource Center, and Urban Reststop), and Student Education and Advocacy opportunities (on campus and throughout the community).
