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 This “siloed” approach is obsolete and is being replaced by environments where health professionals and their learners work together as a high functioning team.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.
