There will be four workshops over this academic year. Two in the fall semester and two in the spring that will focus on increasing awareness and knowledge of military culture and experiences for future service providers to improve quality of care, assistance, and interaction with veterans. Students that complete all four workshops will earn a certificate of completion from the Interprofessional Practice and Education Center.
This in-person program is designed for students in their third/fourth year of undergraduate studies or at the graduate level. It is a development series where each workshop builds off the other. It was designed for students to attend all four workshops in order to maximize the learning experience. The training will include content and exposure to personal stories that are sensitive in nature.
