MD ID 6202 - Foundations of Interprofessional Education (IPE), Supplementary Clinical Experience
University of Utah 1st and 2nd year Medical students are invited to participate in a new VA Patient Bedside Experience at the SL VA Hospital medicine ward. Work with a Nurse's Assistant (VA Heath Tech) then a Registered Nurse on the busy Acute Medicine/2E ward for a minimum of 2 but as many as 4 shifts.

Learn how to improve your communication style and gain patient trust. With time and patient approval, you will be able to perform patient cares and how to operate medical devices on the medicine floor. You have the opportunity to improve your communication skills with a patient population that may be 3-4x your age and to become more aware of all the contributors to a patient's healthcare team - from housekeepers to health techs, clerks to nurses.

Reduce your stress in a hospital environment and gain some basic verbal and nonverbal communication skills to facilitate your relationships with patients and staff.
