Course Detail
Course Components:
The Surgical Care Navigator course is an inter-professional experience intended to provide students with an introduction to transitions of care in clinical practice. Students will follow a single surgical patient throughout the entire cycle of care, including pre-operative assessment, peri-operative inpatient care, and post-discharge follow up. Students will participate in this experience with an inter-professional team that will include 1-3 other health professions students (physician assistant, nurse practitioner, pharmacy). Asynchronous learning through an online discussion platform will provide additional opportunities for inter-professional reflection and learning.
