Center for Interprofessional Education and Simulation Faculty Development Offerings

Foundations Interprofessional Collaborative Practice: Level One and Level Two Facilitator Training

Foundational Facilitator Training

The Center offers an in-depth training session to prepare all facilitators for coordinating interprofessional teams prior to required curricular offerings. These sessions are held in the winter and fall prior to the Foundations of Interprofessional Collaboration: Introduction to TeamSTEPPS. The program is sponsored by the Center and conducted by faculty from our Curricular Planning committee who are experts in leading interprofessional teams.

This program is designed to provide our educators with the skills they need to facilitate interprofessional teams, the tools to conduct highly-active, experiential learning and logistical information about our foundational level programs.

Interprofessional Objective Structured Teaching Experience (iOSTE)

The iOSTE is a training tool for faculty and preceptors similar to an objective structured clinical examination for student learners. This training is a fully immersive experiential learning activity. Through this OSTE, faculty and preceptors will be presented with scenarios that require them to:

  1. facilitate a small group of interprofessional students, even in the face of reluctant and disruptive behavior. 
  2. precept an interprofessional team of students, even when the team is dysfunctional and dominated by one voice.
  3. evaluate team-based communication and patient care, offering up difficult, yet timely feedback. 
  4. participate in presenting the patient "with and in front of the patient", even when the team is used to the more traditional style of patient presentations.
  5. co-precept an interprofessional team of students with preceptors from other professions.

The next iOSTE is scheduled for February 2nd, 2017 from 9:30-12:00 noon. Contact Serra Goodman for more information.
