Networking Session Lesson Plan: Hidden Disabilities

The NJ-PREP consortium members conduct a Network Session each month with the purpose of bringing together all grant funded health profession students (credit and non-credit) in the college to discuss important topics which reside outside of their curriculum of study. “…the program participants will be part of a cohort-established peer support group for health professions students (credit and non-credit). The cohort will participate in monthly networking sessions where students, faculty, and experts meet and discuss interdisciplinary topics…”2 Network Sessions aid in preparing our graduates for the diverse work environment of our area. The interdisciplinary group provides students with the opportunity to relate to team-based healthcare scenarios prior to entering the workforce. Topics are focused on essential career readiness skills, including, but not limited to, oral and written communication, time management, critical thinking, professionalism, professional appearance, collaboration and networking, teamwork, health literacy, and cultural competence.
