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 Preceptor Summit

Preceptors from KU Medical Center and identified "outside" practice settings come together for a half-day retreat to collaborate on expanding interprofessional education and practice intentionally for our learners in experiential rotations.The summit will be held on December 1, 2016.

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.

We currently do not have anything scheduled but please feel free to check back at another time or to contact Serra Goodman.

Interprofessional Journal Club

The Journal Club offers the opportunity to participate in a guided discussion of clinical or team-based topics affecting IPE and IPP.

This program is offered in two spring and fall sessions, which are offered in conjunction with our Center for Interprofessional Education and Simulation team meetings. Facilitators rotate with each session.

Please contact Serra Goodman for more information.
