Problem-Based Learning and Clinical Skills Immersion

The Problem-Based Learning and Clinical Skills Immersion activity is a free, one-day program at UConn Health, geared toward first- and second-year college students, which allows learners to step into the role of a health professional and participate in a clinical skills activity, learn about different health careers, and interact with current health professions students. 100% of learners report that “it was a positive experience to have health professions and research students as mentors for the program.”
