A new partnership with La Universidad de Cuenca allowed students to participate in an introductory workshop on collaborative care for university faculty in both the MFT program and medical school. Students participated in both the instructor and learner role as they explored the challenges (and benefits) of establishing collaborative care models of service in a developing economy. Students had opportunities to visit current MFT training sites and primary care clinics that could serve as testing sites for collaborative care initiatives.  Student Experience:
