Abstract

Historically, physicians have worked in isolation. More recently, there has been an emphasis to create interprofessional patient care teams to provide better patient care and reduce patient risk. This shift in focus has filtered down to the undergraduate medical education level where the American Association of Medical Colleges has created accreditation standards focused on interprofessional team training. This paper gives a first-hand narrative on how interdprofessional training can shift perspectives and create effective team members centered around patient care.
