Student poster on USF Health BRIDGE Clinic wins at conference

Fourth-year medical student Stephanie Hudey presented one of four winning student posters at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Annual Forum in December in Orlando for a co-produced poster presenting data that could help improve patient flow through the USF Health BRIDGE Clinic, thus opening up time to include additional patients and better manage the volunteer health care providers.

Called “Trial and Error: The Challenge of Maximizing Operational Efficiency at a Student-Run Free Clinic,” the poster was also selected as an example of high-impact student work.

“Our poster really helped detail our efforts at the BRIDGE Clinic for improving the quality and efficiency of care we provide our patients,” Hudey said.

In addition to Hudey, authors for the poster include second-year medical student Seth Vanzant, fourth-year medical student Kathryn Dean, and Dr. Eduardo Gonzalez, a faculty physician mentor for the BRIDGE Clinic.
