Interprofessional Programs

ISLP:  Interprofessional Service Learning Project

Lowcountry AHEC partners with the Medical University of South Carolina to provide health profession students with collaborative, community-based interprofessional learning experiences designed to increase student knowledge and skills in health promotion/disease prevention. This project, known as ISLP, was designed by MUSC faculty as part of the Creating Collaborative Care Initiative. The program is being implemented in collaboration with the MUSC Junior Doctors of Health Program. For more information about ISLP please go to their website www.musc.edu/JDOH.

RISE:  Rural Interdisciplinary Student Experience

Lowcountry AHEC partners with the Medical University of South Carolina Physician Assistant Program to offer a 2-week pre-clinical experience in a rural hospital setting to help the transition from didactic education to the clinical phase through observational learning.  During this experience students learn about the healthcare delivery system and trials and tribulations affecting the delivery of care in rural communities.
