Flexible Activities

In partnership with the University of Toronto, North York General Hospital supports health profession students in developing key competencies outlined in the IPE curriculum through participation in specific learning activities in the clinical setting.
 

These activities may include:

1. Participation in Interprofessional Team Education

In this experience, the student will have the opportunity to learn with, from and about colleagues (staff/students). The session(s) must include staff/students from at least two other professions and provide an opportunity for the student to interact with at least one other participant (e.g. small group/pair discussions). 

Examples of educational sessions that may be appropriate include lunch and learn sessions, journal club discussions, etc. Given the diversity of the sessions possible, the opportunities to address the learning objectives may vary accordingly.

A minimum of one-hour participation in interprofessional (IP) team education is required in addition to a written reflection and discussion with student preceptor/clinically-based IPE lead.

 

2. Interview a Patient/Client

In this experience, the student will have the opportunity to learn with, from and about a patient/client and other team members through first interviewing and shadowing a patient/client and then shadowing the patient/client as he/she interacts with at least two other team members.

A minimum of two hours of interviewing and shadowing is required for this activity in addition to written reflection and discussion with the clinical preceptor.


3. Interview and Shadow Two Team Members

In this experience, the student will have the opportunity to learn with, from and about other team members through first interviewing and then shadowing at least two other team members.

A minimum of four hours of interviewing and shadowing is required for this activity in addition to written reflection and discussion with the student preceptor.

 

4. Participation in Team Meetings

In this experience, the student will participate in team discussions with at least two other team members across a minimum of two team interactions/meetings, ideally with the same team.

A minimum of two hours of team interaction time is required for this activity in addition to written reflection and discussion with the student preceptor.
