Interprofessional Coaches and Faculty

VPIL faculty members and senior learners from the four represented professions rotate through the clinic sites with the interprofessional teams of students to assist the clinic preceptors in navigating the educational process. These Interprofessional Coaches help guide students with flow, assist with patient consults (when appropriate), teach clinic tasks (checking BP, asking intake questions, etc.), provide one-on-one coaching and guide student reflections.
