Abstract

This past year's online format has limited the opportunity for occupational therapy doctorate (OTD) students to develop peer social relationships and interprofessional relationships due to limited opportunities for face-to face communications with peers and allied healthcare workers. Inter-professional relationships are an important component of healthcare to foster future clinicians to deliver high quality healthcare to our patient populations. Peer to peer collaboration provides students with the opportunity to teach each other skills that can be transferred into clinical practice that ultimately can benefit their future patients. The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) OTD students collaborated with the Innovations Office to integrate 3 dimensional (3D) printing projects into an lab experience during a 6 week on campus experience. The ultimate outcome of the assignment was to provide students with the opportunity to build relationships with their peers, relationships with a campus department independent of the OTD program, learn new technology for future clinical practice and to implement their creations into patient care. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce a novel assignment during the pandemic incorporating student inter- and intra-professional opportunities, technology and to introduce cost effective adaptive tools to underserved communities.
