The purpose of the T3 Train-the-Trainer Faculty Development Program is to provide expert instruction and consultation regarding interprofessional education (IPE) faculty development activities, while also capitalizing on the collective and unique experiences of regional training sites. Through the use of innovative curriculum, high quality experiential learning, and coaching, we will develop interprofessional teams' ability to promote and facilitate collaborative leadership, IPE, and interprofessional collaborative practice (ICP). This 3.5-day program will prepare health professions faculty and collaborative practice clinicians from all professions to lead IPE efforts and promote team-based care. This program is designed for emerging leaders in IPE who can successfully lead and facilitate IPE and ICP.


Upon completion of the Program, participants should be able to:

  1. Develop and customize interprofessional education activities across the learning continuum (from academia to practice).
  2. Utilize methods and approaches to evaluate and assess the effectiveness of interprofessional education across the learning continuum.
  3. Develop emerging interprofessional education leaders to champion cultural changes within educational and health systems.
  4. Create interprofessional education and collaborative practice activities grounded in the concepts of team dynamics and culture change.
  5. Utilize and model innovative teaching approaches to facilitate interprofessional education and collaborative practice.
  6. Implement plans for leading and sustaining meaningful interprofessional education and collaborative practice at their own institutions.
  7. Utilize communication tools and techniques that facilitate discussions and interactions that enhance team function and patient safety.
  8. Establish an interprofessional peer network to help expand the capacity of faculty who can successfully lead and facilitate IPE and ICP in the U.S.
