The Health Sciences Education and Research Commons (HSERC) congratulates our Interprofessional Health Team Development (INT D 410) colleagues, Bukola Salami
and Gabriela Constantinescu
, on their inclusion in Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40.
Sharla King, Director of HSERC, has been working with faculty partners for 15 years to create responsive, health-team development curriculum. "INT D 410 is a process-learning course," says King. "Designed to provide our students with the foundational knowledge, skills and attitudes they'll need to work collaboratively in health service delivery. Our ultimate goal is enhanced patient care through collaborative practice." Student teams are grouped into sections that are facilitated by health sciences faculty or practitioners from a variety of disciplines.
"Our success is dependent on facilitators like Bukola Salami and Gabriela Constantinescu. These educators bring diverse skill-sets and experiences that, in turn, offer students enriched learning," says King. Bukola Salami is an assistant professor with the Faculty of Nursing, and Gabriela Constantinescu is a Speech Language Pathologist and PhD Candidate in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine. Facilitators in INT D 410 include faculty members from programs across all health sciences faculties at the University of Alberta, and practitioners from health sciences disciplines in the community.
