The Train-the-Trainer Interprofessional Faculty Development Program (T3-IFDP) develops collaborative teams to transform healthcare education and practice with an in-person experiential education program and one year of consulting.
Our longitudinal program supports teams beginning with registration and through the implementation of your project.
What is T3-IFDP?
The T3-IFDP is an immersive leadership-training program for teams wanting to learn how to design and implement effective interprofessional education and collaborative practice projects at their institutions. Team members will develop professional leadership skills and strengthen team dynamics to increase project success.
