IPE Immersion Day Spring 2023: The Other End of the Stethoscope

Immersion day spring 2023 flyerOn January 20, 2023, 168 students from 11 health careers programs participated in an interprofessional education activity. The speaker, Marcus Engel, used his amazing story of recovery to highlight the importance of collaboration and compassion, and care during interactions with patients. 

Upon completion of the event, students reflected on the value of collaborating with an interprofessional team and its effects on patient outcomes. Breakout groups discussed the differences between empathy and sympathy and the importance of “presence” and the impact that can be made just by being there for patients in their time of need.
