You are invited to submit an application to join the Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative! As a student hotspotter, you will assemble an interprofessional group of students focused on collaboratively gaining insight into the root causes that lead patients to have repeat emergency room visits and hospital admissions, and analyze how this additional utilization might have been avoided. Instead of focusing on specific clinical interventions, you will work with individuals with high utilization of the hospital within your community to understand their unique circumstances and help connect them with community resources that could lead to better health outcomes. Through participation in the six-month learning collaborative, you will receive in-depth training on trauma-informed care, social determinants of health, team building, communication, advocacy and more to help you improve our care delivery systems both now and in the future.
The Student Hotspotting program is co-hosted by our four Student Hotspotting hubs:
Thomas Jefferson University – Philadelphia, PA
Samuel Merritt University – Oakland, CA
University of Utah – Salt Lake City, UT
Southern Illinois University – Springfield, IL
These four institutions serve as centers of training and mentorship for schools in their region. As such, each team will be paired with one of these four institutions based on indicated preference on this application. Your assigned hub will administer the Student Hotspotting curriculum and support your team through regular check-ins as you launch this program within your own institution.
Please note that although your indicated preference will be heavily weighted in assigning your placement, we cannot guarantee top preference to all applicants.
