Research Day 2015: its a wrap!
This year’s Research Day 2015 “It Takes A Team: Interprofessional Collaboration In Health Care” was a great success, with 55 students and faculty presenting their research. We had strong participation on both the Pocatello and Meridian campuses with a total of 502 attendees. The keynote speaker, Roderick S. Hooker, PhD, MBA, PA, presented on the topic of “Health Professions: An Environmental Scan for Today and Tomorrow.” The case study interprofessional activity was added this year with positive feedback from faculty and students. This activity encouraged students from different disciplines to collaborate regarding an interprofessional case study and learn about the roles of other disciplines with faculty and student moderators.
A special thank you to the committee members for all their work and professionalism in serving on the Research Day Committee. Thank you to Amy Hardy and Wendy Mickelsen who have served as co-chairs the past 2 years, doing an outstanding job!
