Purpose: The approach to healthcare in the US is undergoing a significant transformation. Universities assume a large responsibility in this transformation process by preparing students to move into the workforce equipped with the knowledge, abilities and confidence to take their place in an evolving environment and to be contributors and leaders in this process. Many studies have shown that service learning is an effective pedagogy for facilitating student understanding of social justice and healthcare disparities. This project utilizes the Student Health Outreach for Wellness (SHOW) clinic, which is a collaborative effort run by students and guided by faculty. Students and faculty from Arizona's universities have come together in partnership with community and government organizations to create a team of interdisciplinary professionals with diverse backgrounds, (nursing, social work, nutrition, medicine, pharmacy, PA, PT, and audiology, business, journalism, law, global health, computer science) serving the homeless in Maricopa County with the goal of striving to overcome socioeconomic barriers to well-being through health promotion, education, and social outreach. Students learn and experience real, hands-on skills and opportunities to impact health and healthcare at the individual, population and systems level. Description: Multiple metrics are tracked to evaluate project effectiveness with validated instruments: IFS: Interprofessional Education (IPE) Facilitation Scale assess IPE facilitation, completed by students on preceptor performance after each clinic shift & AITCS: Assessment of IP Teamwork Collaboration Scale measures IP collaboration, completed by preceptors on student performance after each clinic shift. IP-CRQ©: Interprofessional Collaboration Readiness Questionnaire - Student self-assessment of readiness to engage in problem-solving communication and effective working team relationships and UWE-IQ©: University of the West of England IP Questionnaire - Student self-assessment of communication, team work skills and attitudes toward collaborative learning and working. Both instruments completed post semester experience. Also track ED/Urgent care clinic diversion, community impact, and patient satisfaction with services. Results: Study period August 2015-May 2016: Student Demographics-majority of students were female (82.5%), < 23 years of age (61.1%), (average age 25 years), 46.7% were non-White racial/ethnic minority. Over 13 disciplines ...
