Interprofessional team-based care has the potential to improve patient outcomes, improve access to care, decrease costs, and improve team satisfaction. In recent years, efforts to implement team-based care have grown with the adoption of the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and an increasing focus on value-based payment models. To better prepare our learners for this future, we introduced a formal team-based care curriculum in our three family medicine residency programs and one pediatric program. In addition to curricula for residents, we developed a team-based care didactic for family medicine clerkship students, presented by an interprofessional team of faculty. This session will describe our curricular efforts, team-based didactic for students, and outcomes related to students’ experiences with and knowledge of team-based care.
