Over 300 NYU College of Nursing and NYU School of Medicine students came together on the evening of February 2, 2011, to launch the new interprofessional program NYU3T: Teaching, Technology, and Teamwork. This program was developed over a four-year period by co- principalinvestigators Marc Triola, MD, and Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN, with the support of a generous grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. The year-long curriculum brings Medicine and Nursing students together to learn the skills of working together as a health care team, and will include a blend of live activities, such as participation in a high-fidelity simulation, and virtual learning.
At the kickoff event, Drs. Triola and Fulmer welcomed the students and presented an overview of the program’s goals. They were then joined via Skype by Richard Schwartzstein, MD, the Kay Senior Fellow in Medical Education Ellen and Melvin Gordon Professor of Medicine and Medical Education at Harvard Medical School, who spoke about the importance of doctors and nurses working as a team to provide the best patient-centered care.
Following the lecture, students broke into smaller work groups, led by faculty facilitators from the College of Nursing and the School of Medicine, to meet and to discuss elements of the lecture. The students had an opportunity to meet in person before they begin their year-long collaborative learning on principles of team-based care.
