Our College Co-sponsored the Oct. 17th workshop with Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM). We gathered at BCOM to hear Dr. Kimberly Adams Tufts, our guest speaker, explain IPE design in our curriculum. Dr. Kimberly Adams Tufts is a Professor at Old Dominion University. We would like to thank Dean Wagner and Senior Associate Dean Robert Ketchum who sponsored this workshop.
Our CHSS Interprofessional Education Committee, chaired by Associate Dean Kopera-Frye, planned this event.Members of the CHSS Interprofessional Education Committee are; Dr. Cynthia Kratze, Dr. Randee Greenwold, Dr. Erika Gergerich, Dr. Linda Summers, Dr. Martha Moralez, Dr. Stacy Gherardi, Ms. Tracy Alvidrez.
Attendees included BCOM faculty and faculty from Public Health, Social Work, and Nursing. We will use the learned information in collaborative research and teaching efforts through our new inter-institutional approach. What an exciting time to lead this initiative and prepare students to work in Interprofessional teams in healthcare!
The College of Health and Social Services is committed to interprofessional education and teaching. Only by focusing on interprofessional strategies and coursework will our students be prepared to work effectively in professional settings designed by the 21st century.
