Academic Training Information

Several versions of the student-focused training are available for outside faculty to use and modify for their purposes. Each training consists of a 2-2.5-hour interprofessional session using standardized patients and/or video scenarios. The curriculum is intended for health professions students who are close to entering their clinical education experiences. Through guided discussion of patient cases, the trainings facilitate communication of interprofessional student teams of primary care providers / prescribers (PCP’s), nurses, medical assistants, pharmacists, social workers, and behavioral health professionals. The trainings are designed for one instructor to facilitate one or more interprofessional teams of 4-8 people. The curriculum, grounded in the interprofessional education core competencies (IPEC, 2016), focuses on roles and responsibilities of all team members (including the patient), communication, teams and teamwork, values, and ethical decision-making.

Student-focused Training Versions:

  • Videoconference version using Zoom and standardized patients (adapted February, 2021 during COVID-19 pandemic)
  • In-person version using standardized patients
