dc.description.abstractThe importance of interprofessional communication in the clinical realm and the beneficial nature of early clinical exposure for medical students have been well documented in the literature. This study evaluates how the opinions of first-year medical students at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix change over the course of the first year in regard to the importance of interprofessional communication. It also aims to discover whether or not students find the two early clinical exposure courses at the College of Medicine to be useful in developing these opinions. This qualitative research study utilizes a survey composed of two free response questions sent out at the beginning and end of the 2018-2019 school year to the Class of 2022. Using thematic analysis, the authors found that many of the themes in responses stayed the same throughout the year. Students appear to particularly appreciate interprofessional communication for its influence in team-based dynamics and high-quality patient care. This study also found that students frequently described one early clinical exposure course, Community Clinical Experience, as influential in developing perceptions about interprofessional communication.en_US
