“Hot Spotter” Grant Opportunity for Interprofessional Student Teams, Deadline May 8, 2015

From the AAMC:

The AAMC is once again partnering with the Camden Coalition and Primary Care Progress to host a 6 month interprofessional student learning collaborative on hot spotting. You are invited to submit an application to become a hot spotter and learn from one of the pioneers behind the concept – Jeffrey Brenner, MD and his colleagues at the Camden Coalition – and receive up to $4,000 in matching funds to support your work!

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 super-utilizers in 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 motivational interviewing, social determinants of health, team-building, communication, advocacy and more to help you improve our care delivery systems both now and in the future.
