This course will teach social work students to achieve positive client outcomes through interdisciplinary teamwork and interprofessional communication while utilizing social work values, methods, and skills at a multi-disciplinary student-run health clinic that includes student-practitioners from schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacology, dentistry, and social work. The course will help students understand the roles and responsibilities of each discipline on the healthcare team, the importance of effective communication, and the role of team collaboration in clinical decision making. Students will also learn about how the unique lens of social work adds tremendous value to other members of the interdisciplinary team. Students will participate at the student-run health clinic in Pinckney, MI a minimum of 3 times during the term, with individual on-site supervision and group supervision meetings with the course instructor throughout the term.
