In Baltimore, Dr. Jack was on a panel at the plenary session on Inter Professional Education (IPE) for the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine. It was an opportunity to showcase ASDOH’s effort to promote Inter Professional Education (IPE).
Specifically, he talked about ASDOH’s work with the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (SOMA) and the Arizona School of Health Sciences (ASHS) and the use of ASDOH students making presentations in SOMA, and Physical therapy students from ASHS working with ASDOH students, ie: teaching them proper posture while doing dental procedures. They are affectionately called the “posture police” at the school.
Additionally, through a partnership with the ASU School of Social Work, Master of Social Work students and ASU faculty work with ASDOH students and faculty on our clinic floor.
