TLC Supports Interprofessional Health Education
The new Teaching and Learning Center on the Parnassus Library’s second floor exemplifies the Chancellor’s education priority, one of five key priorities outlined to guide UCSF in its pursuit of continued excellence.
As construction of the TLC progresses rapidly, campus academic programs prepare to take advantage of the center’s facilities to support innovative educational activities. Maria Wamsley, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine, and colleagues from the schools of dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and physical therapy have collaborated on a very successful pilot curriculum that brings interprofessional teams of students together to evaluate a patient and collaboratively formulate a treatment plan. Once the new Kanbar Center opens, Dr. Wamsley and colleagues plan to expand the pilot to accommodate 200 students and improve integration of activity into existing curricula for each professional school.
