IN THE COMMUNITY
Work alongside your health science colleagues to serve the needs of our local communities.
The events and activities below provide students from across professions the opportunity to work together and with community partners, to address health disparities and improve population health.
UW Health Sciences Interprofessional Mobile Health Van
The UW Health Sciences Interprofessional Mobile Health Van is a pilot program that supports health screening and education outreach events with people experiencing homelessness in the greater Seattle area. We are currently partnering with the student organization, University District Street Medicine (UDSM), to develop opportunities for street outreach and education in the University District and beyond. More information will be available about opportunities as they are developed.
The UW Listening Project
The Listening Project is a unique collaboration between UW IPE Program and community organizations such as the Seattle King County Clinic and the Seattle Stand Down. It is intended to cultivate future health care providers’ communication skills, empathy, and the perceived value of listening to patient’s stories. Students are placed in interprofessional pairs, and walk the floors of large-scale health events to engage with and hear from patients.
