Nationally, Community and Technical College health workforce programs produce a wide variety of health professionals who are essential to patient care and team functioning. This Conversation Café will dive into the key role these programs play in the systems of preparing our health professionals.

  • How engaged are our large academic institutions with their local community colleges?

  • What resources are in place to provide support to building the partnerships across the academic community?

  • What models are in place that support IPEC curriculum and program development for community college programs?

  • What external stakeholders and partners are key to building support for community college health workforce programs?

  • How can community colleges leverage their role in the communities to strengthen and enhance academic and clinical practice partnerships?

Gather with us as we share our experiences with these challenges and contribute to the generation of next steps in building this vital connection between Community and Technical Colleges and the broader health care system.
