"Teamwork and collaboration are essential in managing patient/client in the clinical setting. As one of the facilitators, I hope I can navigate and contribute to the development of our students' journey towards a collaborative medical practice".

"As a social worker, I work with my clients on their psychosocial health, which is related to but often goes beyond the clients' physical ailment. It makes me realize the importance of holistic health care that operates in a transdisciplinary manner with the active involvement of the patient. I am happy to see IPE's initiative to commence the collaboration practice early, and I am grateful to be a part of the team. As a facilitator, I am very happy to learn from the students through knowledge and perspective exchanges."

“It's my great pleasure to work as a peer facilitator at IPECP. Not only did I get the precious opportunity to facilitate discussion with students with diverse backgrounds, but I also got involved in collaborative work. This transferable skill enables me to become a better team player in my future work setting!”

How the program promotes satisfaction of you and student
"When I participated in the program, I was able to orient and guide my peers using a student's perspective, such as giving an overview of the program and important deadlines. I also taught them the functions of concept map making, which I found confusing or difficult when I was a student. I guided my peers so that they could have clear ideas about the topics and their tasks.
Guiding my peers helped me build rapport with them, making them feel free to speak their minds by raising questions about the program or sharing ideas within the group. It also made me understand the importance of using my target audience's perspective and hitting the "pain points." Considering their perspective enabled me to help them get the needed information and understand the message I wanted to deliver. Furthermore, as I needed to handle questions from my peers, some of which were unexpected, I was required to have further and more flexible ideas about the content I was going to facilitate, allowing me to have a better understanding and appreciation of the effectiveness and benefits of interprofessional teamwork. I am very thankful to have the chance to participate in the IPE program."
