The University of Utah offers health sciences students a unique telehealth training experience combined with interprofessional education (IPE). Students from nursing, medicine, social work, etc. are first taught telehealth concepts and etiquette and IPE competencies. Simulated complex case studies over video then provide a safe environment for students to practice applying telehealth in an interprofessional setting. A partnership with Utah Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Scholars Program broadened the training so students from multiple universities and colleges across Utah train together.
Hosted by: The Northwest Regional Telehealth Resource Center (NRTRC) has a mission to advance the development, implementation, and integration of telehealth in rural and underserved communities. The NRTRC serves Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

- Is your door open, closed, or somewhere in between? Telehealth and Telemedicine can be intimidating, scary, exciting, and to some completely absurd. Some close the door, and think, absolutely not, we cannot see patients and communicate with other providers through a screen.
- What's a mile long and packed with 45,000 people from over 90 countries? If you guessed the HIMSS 2019 Annual Conference, you would be correct!
