More than 320 faculty, staff, and graduate students from the MGH Institute of Health Professions visited almost 30 non-profits and other organizations during its 2nd Community Day on September 20. It was almost triple the number of locations from last year.
Each team of 10 was composed of students in nursing, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology who are beginning a semester-long class called Interprofessional Model for Patient and Client-centered Teams, or IMPACT, where they will learn to work collaboratively and lay the groundwork to provide interprofessional patient care during and after their MGH Institute education.
