Following a Q&A format, each chapter provides a deep-dive into three of the seven programs highlighted in “Progress and Promise: Profiles in Interprofessional Health Training to Deliver Patient-Centered Primary Care,” by sharing the program's experiences, opportunities and challenges in building and maintaining an interprofessional program.


Chapter 1: Listen as Dr. Barbara Brandt and Dr. Marci Nielsen discuss unique aspects of seven interprofessional teaching programs providing collaborative, coordinated care in patient-centered medical homes. From understanding the “Nexus” and patient-centered medical homes to student participation, the lively discussion introduces practices that make an extraordinary commitment to teaching the next generation of health professionals while implementing new models of care that partner with patients– and the local community – a crucial part of the team.
