This presentation discusses a new Indiana University initiative that addresses the issue of population health and the need for creating a new generation of health care professionals. The “IU Regional Health Consortium” is a collaborative protocol offering two new health care programs, a medical humanities minor and an allied health practitioners credentialing program. The consortium aims to provide IU students with additional educational opportunities in STEM fields, contribute to a culture that focuses on health, enhance the current economic and developmental value to regional communities, and prepare a new generation of health practitioners to respond to a growing health care labor market. The consortium stems from an internal collaboration (within each campus) and an effective inter-campus recruitment and collaboration. In addition, the consortium expands the collaboration between each campus involved in the protocol and the community at large, targeting various local and state agencies to develop internships, practicum programs, and service learning opportunities for all students.
