Developing a hybrid interprofessional education initiative for graduate students: Study

October 25, 2022
Four researchers from Nathan Weiss Graduate College in the US have published a discussion of their recent exploratory case study on hybrid interprofessional education for graduate students in Higher Education Pedagogies. The authors explain that since interprofessional education is a form of learning that health-care graduate students often engage in once they are in their field, they developed a voluntary interprofessional training program for students in select fields. They discuss the successful aspects of the program, such as the use of in-person meetings and clear roles for faculty to establish and execute on a shared vision for the initiative, as well as the challenges they faced with issues such as conflicting schedules and timing or errant understandings of student preferences.
