5023.0 Interprofessional education for public health

Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 8:30 AM
The Academic Public Health Caucus is a platform for APHA members to discuss issues of mutual concern regarding academic public health, such as academic public health practice. Specifically, the caucus provides a forum to showcase and learn about innovations in education, training, and academic research not only from public health academicians, but also from practitioners within public health institutions (i.e., federal, state, regional, local, private sector or non-profit organizations or personnel) that administer or participate in Academic/Practice partnerships. Academic/Practice partnerships include, but are not limited to, inter- multi- and trans-disciplinary collaborations to promote health and prevent disease and injury among populations. This session will focus on interprofessional education in public health.
Session Objectives: Identify connections across basic science, clinical medicine and public health. Organize an approach to integrating population health into a medical school curriculum. Discuss the major recommendations from the CDC National Preconception Health and Health Care (NPHHC) Initiative. Describe principles of both interprofessional education and service learning pedagogy and discuss the application of these principles into public health education.
