As a future health professional, we need you to contribute to the dialogue about interprofessional practice and its impact on learners, patients and health outcomes. Nexus Summit 2018 is a unique opportunity for you to engage with professionals committed to advancing the field of interprofessional practice and education.
Student Poster Session
This year, Nexus Summit 2018 has a special call for student poster presentations. You get to showcase your work and have the opportunity to get personalized feedback directly from attendees. Student Posters are featured on Monday and Tuesday during the Nexus Fair!
One student poster will be selected for the Interprofessional Student Achievement Award, presented during the Awards Celebration.
Student Engagement Forum
Designed by students for students, and hosted by the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative Student Engagement Task Force—the Engagement Forum is a students-only discussion about shaping student engagement opportunities in interprofessional practice and education.
The Student Engagement Forum is on Monday, July 30, 7-8 am. Breakfast provided!
Make a connection with a Mentor
When you register for Nexus Summit, indicate your interest in connecting with a faculty mentor and you’ll be paired prior to the event. It’s a great opportunity to build your network and learn about other professions.
On Monday evening, join other students and your faculty mentors for a debriefing session. It’s a perfect opportunity to dig deeper into conference events and topics. The debriefing session will be held from 4:30-5:30 pm on Monday.
AIHC Member Reception
All student attendees of Nexus Summit 2018 will receive a special invitation to attend the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative reception on Monday evening from 5:30-7:30 pm. Join a diverse group of health professionals and faculty committed to advancing interprofessional practice and education. It’s a great opportunity to make connections, get noticed (and enjoy free food).
When the workshops, presentations and events end, each student will be awarded a certificate of participation for attending Nexus Summit 2018. Demonstrating your engagement and commitment to interprofessional practice and education will be a great way for your CV to stand out with faculty advisors and potential employers.
Students are eligible for a discounted rate for the full conference.
