You are invited to submit an application to become a hotspotter as part of the Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative! As a Student Hotspotter, you will assemble an interprofessional team of students to collaboratively gain insight into the root causes that lead some patients to have repeat emergency room visits and hospital admissions and analyze how this additional utilization might have been avoided. 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 correlates of health, team-building, communication, advocacy and more to help you improve our care delivery systems both now and in the future.
We are excited to have partnered with four institutions across the nation to expand the reach of the Student Hotspotting:
Thomas Jefferson University – Philadelphia, PA
Samuel Merritt University – Oakland, CA
University of Utah – Salt Lake City, UT
Southern Illinois University – Springfield, IL
You will be placed at one of these four hubs based off of indicated preference on this application. Your hub will be responsible for hosting the kick-off and wrap-up events, and for running the daily programmatic operations of the program, while the Camden Coalition will provide programmatic and curriculum oversight. Although your indicated preference will be heavily weighted in assigning your placement, please note that we cannot guarantee top preference to all applicants.
