A common thread binds people in the medical field together—the desire to help. Through a course on interprofessional leadership, students at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Jefferson College of Health Sciences are helping in a big way. As part of the course, 14 groups of eight students designed projects to contribute to the community and strengthen their own ability to work as a team. On April 28, the students concluded the course with oral and poster presentations summarizing their accomplishments.
