Our Priorities Increasing Collaboration Among Future Health Professionals

Students, residents, and graduate students historically learn and train as highly skilled, but largely autonomous, professionals. This “siloed” approach is obsolete and is being replaced by environments where health professionals and their learners work together as a high functioning team. This means promoting collaboration among health care providers, such as nurses, social workers, physicians  pharmacists, and others so that learners in these environments are trained to provide the highest quality patient care as members of a collaborative team. Public health leaders play a critical role in promoting community health and preventing disease and are vital collaborators with the health care team.

How to Educate Health Professionals in the Middle of a Pandemic

With support from the Association of American Medical Colleges, medical schools in New York, and a grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, Tara Cunningham and her team at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai launched the week-long Subway Summit Webinar Series: COVID-19 Lessons Learned from the Epicenter, where they brought more than 700 registrants from across the world together to participate in eight different sessions focused on helping faculty, administrators, and students adapt to medical school during the COVID-19 pandemic.
