Dr. Alyssa Bryant: Receives IPEC funding for Interprofessional Team Training program

With funding provided by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) awarded funding to 16 interprofessional teams to accelerate educational content refinement and submission to MedEdPORTAL for peer review. Alyssa Bryant, MD was honored to receive one of these awards for her submission of her Interprofessional Team Training program. This is a longitudinal curriculum with several class days that bring together students from medicine, nursing, physician assistant, physical therapy, medical imaging and anesthesia assistant programs. The work we do at Emory will be published in MedEdPORTAL, and this open-access instructional module will represent the beginning of a national clearinghouse of competency-linked learning resources for interprofessional education and models of team-based or collaborative care.

Congratulations to Alyssa on her award and her commitment to medical education.
