Abstract

In my role as the director of a school of social work, I welcome opportunities to provide students with hands-on opportunities beyond the classroom or their field experience. Summer was coming to a close and the fall course plans were being finalized when personnel at a medical school approached me to discuss social work students participating in an inter-professional educational (IPE) simulation. What resulted was the beginning of a valuable collaboration that provided enriched, applicable, learning experiences for social work and medical students as they prepare for their professional practices.
