A Train the Trainer Approach to IPE Faculty Development in Appalachia

Description

This poster describes a workshop for WVU Health Sciences Center and our Office of Interprofessional Education that prepares faculty as inter-professional educators with greater understanding of the educational content and processes needed to teach professional students from multiple disciplines, including dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Faculty from the health professions and other disciplines including Social Work, Nutrition, and Gerontology developed plans to add IPE activities to their teaching of students working with patients in our rural underserved areas.
