Jacobsen, Marilyn-Lu Webb
A summary of a study of interdisciplinary education in the health sciences, conducted to identify the conditions and experiences needed to achieve specified objectives, is presented. Ten research questions were used to guide the direction of the research and the Delphi inquiry was used as a data-gathering technique. An expert panel of l5 vice presidents of health sciences were surveyed to obtain consensus on statements related to definition, philosophy, results of, and future projections of interdisciplinary health professions education. Results of this survey are discussed, including recognition of the emergence of the primary care team and the role of faculty in preparing that team. (Author/SPG)
