Abstract

Powerful dynamics of change require practitioners from all disciplines to be prepared to work in interdisciplinary teams, competently access health and information technologies, and understand the multiple functions required for adequate healthcare provision. The University of Iowa's Integrated Health Professions Program is a state-funded effort designed to provide students with a common educational experience to enable them to work collaboratively in underserved or rural settings. Students take part in a series of team-building seminars including technology-based instruction and activities in conjunction with visits to community clinical sites. The authors discuss the experiential, collaborative, and cooperative forms of learning that take place during the seminar series.
