Interprofessional teamwork and leadership is a longitudinal thread that runs through the College of Medicine curriculum. Content covers the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for successful collaboration practice in healthcare.
Interprofessional education (IPE) is the process by which individuals from two or more health professions learn with, from, and about each other across the spectrum of their education to improve collaboration, practice, and the quality of healthcare. Northeast Ohio Medical University has placed interprofessional education at the heart of its values: “To be the premier community-based interprofessional health sciences university in the United States.” Interprofessional education opportunities within the College of Medicine curriculum are developed in coordination with the College of Pharmacy and other health care professional schools.
This guide is focused on illustrating where interprofessional teamwork and leadership content is found in the curriculum and provides resources and educational support to some class sessions and assessments.
The Association for American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has identified Interprofessional Collaboration as a core competency for health professions education. Competency in this domain states that by graduation, students will be able to demonstrate the ability to engage in an interprofessional team in a manner that optimizes safe, effective patient- and population-centered care.
