The Biomedical Sciences Department is committed to helping our students become the best professional practitioners they can be. One area where we are helping our students grow is in understanding the different roles of healthcare providers on a medical team.
In Fall 2017, the dietetics program and students in BMS 536 partnered with undergraduate social work students and graduate occupational therapy students at MSU to learn more about interprofessionalism. Working together virtually, our students used a shared case study to learn the focus of each health care provider and how to help the fictional patient. Overall, the project with a great success. 100% of dietetics students surveyed stated they now know more about working on a medical team and better understand the role of other healthcare providers in helping patients in a clinical setting.
