How to Get Involved with HSERC
There are a number of ways that you can get involved with the Health Sciences Education and Research Commons:
Become a community collaborator
U of A interprofessional health science students are looking for community organizations to partner in a community resource project. Involved organizations work with a team of University students who will retrieve or research information for the organization (or even receive documents from them) and put that information into a useful format that meets the audience's needs. For more information contact IPER at firstname.lastname@example.org
Become an INT D 410 Facilitator
Do you want to inspire and educate future health professionals from different disciplines? Are you looking to share information about your profession, your background and your experiences? Become an INT D 410 facilitator! For more information contact IPER at email@example.com
Become a Standardized Patient (SP)
A Standardized Patient (SP) is a person who has been coached to accurately and consistently recreate the history, personality, physical finding, emotional structure and response pattern of an actual patient at a particular point in time.
The Standardized Patient Program utilizes standardized patients both on and off campus for teaching, demonstration, assessment, examination and video productions. For more information contact Pam Rock at firstname.lastname@example.org
Join our roster of AV technology specialists
If you’re an audiovisual technology specialist looking for part-time work and the opportunity to enhance your skills, consider getting involved with HSERC. You’ll receive training to operate our specialized equipment, such as our wireless simulation mannequin iStan that sweats, bleeds, and breathes.
You’ll also be required to support students participating in isolated hospital and clinical simulations by filming their activities from an external control room with an observation window, and by interacting with them over a microphone.
If you're an audiovisual technology specialist with an interest in healthcare technology and the desire for some part-time work, contact Pam Rock at email@example.com
