MOCK DISASTER DRILL - Volunteers needed!

The School of Nursing and School of Social Work will be hosting a Mock Disaster Drill on Thursday, March 24th from 12:00-2:30 pm in the Rec Sports Center Gym here on campus. They are seeking volunteer “mock” victims to serve as one of the following: an injured "victim," a panicked bystander, a concerned friend or family member, or a spontaneous volunteer.  No matter the role, volunteers will be coached on how to "play" their role and rescued or responded to by the nursing, pharmacy, and social work students.  They are also in need of “helpers” to assist with moulage and coach victims (those with healthcare or medical background will be able to assist in this area). After the simulation, volunteer victims can participate in the debriefing (feedback/evaluation of the simulation). 

If volunteers need to leave early due to class or work conflicts, the event is flexible enough to allow them to leave for class/work.Thank you in advance for helping us prepare our students to successfully respond to disasters.

POVERTY SIMULATION - Volunteers needed! 

The College of Pharmacy will offer students a glimpse into the lives of those living at the economic edge by hosting The Poverty Simulation on April 2. This is the second time the college has hosted the simulation. This time it will be presented by Dr. Veronica Young, director of interprofessional education and clinical associate professor of health outcomes and pharmacy practice, who recently completed training to facilitate the Missouri-based program. The interprofessional event is open to pharmacy, nursing, and social work students and faculty and is designed to provide participants with a glimpse into the contributions and perspectives of each profession in addressing patients and clients wrestling with hard choices brought about by economic insecurities.

To Add An Event:
This page is devoted to IPE student opportunities that may not fit the categories represented on the calendar or may be ongoing in nature. The intent is to help students looking for IPE opportunities find them. For example, faculty may be interested in recruiting students from different health professions to work together on research or community service projects. Other possibilities for student IPE opportunities could be volunteer activities, shadowing, and student organization projects.  As IPE continues to grow on campus, there may be group projects that are a part of required course work that need consultation from students in other health professions. Please include all information necessary for students to access the opportunity. Only faculty, staff, students, organizations and health care agency affiliates of The University of Texas are eligible to submit student opportunities on this page.
