GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Michigan’s largest federally qualified health center may be welcoming a pilot program this fall where students from different health care backgrounds and academic institutions will work as a team at the clinic.
Through the West Michigan Interprofessional Education Initiative, three academic institutions are implementing a nontraditional clinical and collaborative model of care program with Cherry Street Health Services’ family practice at 550 Cherry St. SE, Grand Rapids.
Grand Valley State University, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and Ferris State University College of Pharmacy are participating with the National Center of Interprofessional Practice and Education in an incubator research project to pilot a team-based model of care in a family medicine practice setting.
