Radcliff to receive VCU interprofessionalism award

May 2, 2017


‌‌‌Zachary Radcliff, a doctoral student in the clinical psychology program (child/adolescent concentration) and trainee in the Primary Care Psychology Training Collaborative, is the 2017 recipient of the Student Excellence in Interprofessionalism Recognition Award from the VCU Center for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Care. The CIECC defines interprofessionalism as "teamwork [that] involves different health and/or social care professions who, for example, share a team identity and work closely together in an integrated and interdependent manner to solve complex care problems and deliver services." 

Bruce Rybarczyk, Ph.D., Radcliff's mentor, nominated him for the award saying, "Mr. Radcliff is an immensely talented young psychologist who has a very promising future ahead of him in both clinical and leadership domains. He is highly committed to interprofessional collaboration as we move toward a more integrated medical and behavioral health care system. Other trainees and faculty in medicine, nursing and pharmacy frequently consult with him about clinical and administrative issues, knowing that he will likely have the answers for them or know where to find them if he does not.  He is poised to represent the best of VCU as he heads off to his internship next year in pediatric care at Dupont Children's Hospital in Wilmington, Del."

The Third Annual Student Excellence in Interprofessionalism Recognition Award Ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 11 at 4:00 p.m. in the W. Baxter Perkinson Jr. Building (School of Dentistry) in room 3114.
