Catalog Description: The Longitudinal Trauma informed Care Clerkship I weaves lectures, small group reflections, patient care simulations and a well-established Trauma-Informed Care course into the HYBRID program. These added didactics will explore the nuances and complications of caring for a vulnerable population in a safety net hospital. Each didactic will be offered a few times during the year and students' time will be protected to attend these while on campus. The Trauma Informed Care course will introduce the concept to the students, while sessions, lectures and simulations will support the students in treating patients with complex trauma and medical histories. Mentorship will also be offered through faculty interactions.
