COMMUNITY HEALTH IMPACT FACULTY FELLOWSHIP

The Pullman Regional Hospital Center for Learning and Innovation has a competitive fellowship for Washington State University faculty.

Faculty Fellowship

The Pullman Regional Hospital Center for Learning and Innovation (CLI) has a competitive fellowship for Washington State University faculty.  The Community Health Impact Fellowship is intended to encourage applicants to use the power of creativity and commitment to innovation to support Pullman Regional Hospital in its effort to be a regional leader in healthcare.


Partners in Excellence

As Partners in Excellence, Pullman Regional Hospital and Washington State University are working together to improve the healthcare experience and address population health. For the Community Health Impact Fellowship, we are excited to partner with Dr. Roland Chen,  Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Washington State University. 

Innovation in Action

Students in Dr. Chen's engineering design class worked closely with Dr. Chen and members of our medical staff to design a wearable arm sleeve simulator and chest tube simulator for healthcare providers to practice on. The students demonstrated the products to the Education Council and clinicians to receive feedback.

"The project not only provided a great learning experience for the students and engaged us with the local community, it also helped to enable safer patient care. The students are really excited to be a part of this endeavor." - Dr. Roland Chen, Ph.D

Continued Partnership

The Center for Learning and Innovation at Dr. Chen are continuing to work with students to improve upon the designs.
