Education of staff and students in health care settings: integrating practice and research.

Abstract

A cooperative program between the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) Department of Social Service (DSS) and the University of Iowa School of Social Work (UISSW) integrates faculty and students with clinicians for both practice and/or research internships. This program has endeavored to enhance practice and research social work through the development of (1) multiple student training programs offering both practice and research placement opportunities, (2) a jointly appointed faculty position between the UISSW and the UIHC DSS designed to improve researchers' access to and involvement with practice and practitioners' involvement in practice research, and (3) specialized student training programs including research projects in practice specialties. This project has helped clinicians conduct research, provided students with practical research experience within a clinical setting, and has increased the likelihood that both staff and students will participate in research.
