Publication Date: Sep 01, 2021

The annual DREAM IPC Conference from Nemours will be held virtually Sept. 23-24, and as a proud sponsor, the Mid-America MHTTC is hosting a networking event at the conference.

Training the Next Generation in IPC: A Networking Event for Training and Academic Programs will be held at 11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m. CT/12:30-1:45 p.m. ET on Sept. 24.

This 75-minute networking session will provide space for ​trainers, higher-education program representatives, federal grantees, and anyone interested in developing or enhancing an integrated care training program to learn ​about and exchange tools of the trade. Attendees will hear from seasoned ​IPC trainers in a series of rapid-fire “blitz” presentations on topics ​on their training programs and then participate in small group breakouts on topics such as ​how to build an integrated care training program, as well as how to innovat​e within existing programs. Finally, a panel of academic program leaders will present on lessons learned ​related to developing integrated primary care training programs.

BHWET and GPE grantees will have the opportunity to share and discuss grant implementation strategies with peers. Attendees will also learn ways to sustain or expand upon current programming beyond grant funding.

Representatives from higher education will benefit from meeting with IPC trainers who can support their training programs. There will be time to discuss challenges such as recruiting and retaining students as well as supervision strategies.

You can add this event to your agenda using the conference app after you have registered for the conference. If you haven't yet registered for the conference, you may do so here.
