How to Integrate Learners in a Busy Practice Setting


Integrating learners in your busy practice setting results in a win–win situation: Learners solidify their knowledge by applying what they learn and your clinical practice benefits because learners bring creativity, new ideas, and an extension of services to your day-to-day operations. Unfortunately, many institutions struggle to meaningfully integrate these learners. Attend this session to discover best practices for involving your learners in any busy practice setting.
