    Interprofessional Interaction and Communication: A Strategy Guide for Medical Students is designed to help students prepare for and thrive within clinical rotations, internships, and residencies. The text provides readers with practical communication skills and techniques to foster positive and productive interactions with patients and other clinicians. A series of vignettes based on real-world scenarios helps students navigate ethical dilemmas and interpersonal situations that are common in the clinical environment.

    The book begins with a chapter dedicated to professionalism in clinical practice. Additional chapters highlight effective communication strategies and techniques, outline items students should always have on hand in clinical settings, and review best practices for medical record documentation. Readers learn about standard safety precautions and procedures, as well as the necessity of interpersonal skills, cultural competency, and emotional health development. Concluding chapters provide residency and rotation strategies for success and advice for preparing for graduation, certification exams, and job searches. Throughout, positive affirmations motivate readers as they progress from first contact in the clinical setting to interviewing for professional positions in the field.

    Interprofessional Interaction and Communication is a valuable resource for students taking ethics courses, participating in professional training, or preparing for clinical exposures.

    “Soft skills” are so challenging to teach young medical professionals. It is refreshing to finally see a grounded resource that is practically minded and engaging for todays’ student. It directly addresses the many facets of professionalism, including communication skills, medical documentation and patient privacy, cultural competency, inclusion and emotional health development. It is particularly poignant as the author is a Physician Assistant who possesses a long and a rich history of clinical practice and immersive educational experience.
