Students gather together from noon to 1 p.m. for discussion and orientation to the interprofessional clinic experience.

Current Seed Grant Opportunities

Nicole Brandt, PharmD, MBA, BCGP, BCPP, FASCP (SOP), received a $10,000 seed grant for IPE Care in Geriatrics – Expanding Opportunities of Aging in Place Program in West Baltimore. Faculty and staff collaborating on this project are: Angie Battaglia, MS (SOM), Reba Cornman, MSW (Graduate), Kelly Doran, PhD, RN (SON), Sarah Dee Holmes, MSW (SSW), Daniel Mansour, PharmD, BCGP, FASCP (SOP), Barbara Resnick, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP (SON), Norman Retener, MD (SOM), Bernadette Siaton, MD (SOM), and Everett Smith, LGSW (SSW). The proposed IPE project is to expose interprofessional students (SSW, SON, SOP, SOM) to the needs of older adults through a hybrid learning opportunity, educational and clinical program. Clinical care in geriatrics is by definition interdisciplinary and clinically requires the input of the entire interdisciplinary team. Consequently, the proposed project incorporates the involvement of all disciplines that are important to the care of older adults: medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and social work. The main goal of the project will center around health promotion and disease management and prevention through facilitation of care. Students will be provided with interdisciplinary experiences in the clinical setting to teach and evaluate older adults living in the community, build relationships, and highlight the process of delivering care. This will be achieved by utilizing various learning and educational strategies. To learn more, please contact Dr. Brandt at 410-706-1491 or

Richard Colgan, MD (SOM), received a $14,000 seed grant for the Maryland Area Health Education Center (AHEC): AHEC Scholars Pilot. Faculty and staff collaborating on this project are: Mary Jo Bondy, DHEd, PA-C (Graduate School), Marg Hammersla, PhD, CRNP-A (SON), and Allison Robinson, MPH (SOM). The AHEC Scholars Program (ASP) is national, innovative and interprofessional program for health profession students.  Eligible disciplines include medicine, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, pharmacy, dentistry, psychology, and social work, and students must be two years from completing their degree. The ASP exposes students to interprofessional didactic and community-based clinical or experiential training in rural and/or underserved areas.  We are committed to increasing diversity in ASP, so students who are underrepresented minorities, from disadvantaged/rural backgrounds, and/or first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply! To learn more, please contact Allison Robinson at
