The 2016 provost’s prize was awarded to an interprofessional team from the health sciences programs at the U of S and health professionals from the rural community of Humboldt, Saskatchewan. The team started a clinical experiences program together in 2012, which brings together professionals from the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Nutrition and the School of Physical Therapy. Approximately 200 students have benefited from the program in Humboldt, and this program was recently replicated in the Melfort and Tisdale area.
The project was submitted by Hope Bilinksi, Arlis McQuarrie, Yvonne Shevchuk, and Tom Smith-Windsor.
The Provost’s Prize for Innovative Practice in Collaborative Teaching and Learning annually awards a project in collaborative teaching that has been implemented and demonstrated a positive impact on the student learning experience
