In addition, we will be recognizing several faculty who remarkably shaped, influenced and impacted IPE curriculum.

The Student Hotspotting Program is a national initiative during which students work with several patients with a pattern of high-utilization of healthcare services. Over the spring semester, the students conduct home visits with the patients and accompany them on healthcare interactions in the inpatient and outpatient environments. These students help patients with overcome barriers to health, including both medical issues – like diabetes care – and social issues, such as transportation. This is an intensive program and these students put in countless hours to really make a difference for these individuals.

A second group of VCU students competed in the CLARION Case Competition. In this competition, students analyze a systems-based problem in healthcare and develop solutions. The winners of the local competition then represented VCU at a national competition at the University of Minnesota. All of this work is a significant commitment on top of normal academic work.

Congratulations to all of the 2016 IPE Award Recipients!
