Qualitative Comments Highlighting Student Perceptions

  • “I didn't think interprofessional collaboration would be as important as taught. I was very wrong, it is incredibly important to be an advocate for your role/expertise, understand key players roles, and manage conflict in a team.”
  • “Team based interprofessional collaboration has been built into hospitals and clinics more than I expected already.”
  • “I think as a student I thought that physicians would know more and care more about other health care professionals because of how well Creighton’s med students seemed to understand other health professions, but this wasn’t exactly the case.”

Students were also asked to give feedback on:

  • The most meaningful ways they learned interprofessional skills and
  • To rate activities based on what was most meaningful to learning collaborative practice.

This data will be used by CIPER in continuing to enhance and develop additional interprofessional offerings through our health professional programs.
