T3 Background and Example Projects:

The T3 program was developed by interprofessional faculty from the University of Washington (Seattle, WA), the University of Virginia (Charlottesville, VA), and the University of Missouri (Columbia, MO). This program was established with support from a generous grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and in collaboration with the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education. The T3 program is currently being offered twice per year at UT Austin and at the University of Virginia. Some examples of projects teams have worked on include: 
  • Create a National Graduate Certificate in Palliative Care 
  • Implement an IP Clinical Student Program for Medically Underserved Urban & Rural Clinics 
  • Establish a Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education 
  • Create an IPE course that brings together nursing, medicine, pharmacy, and social work students

“There are no words to express how much I enjoyed the opportunity to attend the T3 Train-the-Trainer Interprofessional Team Development Program organized by the Center for Health Interprofessional Practice and Education at UT Austin. The entire program provided relevant content, skills, and strategies for implementing IPE and facilitating and coaching teams of interprofessional learners. The workshop was abundant in engaging learning activities and project-based learning, relevant to the healthcare field and individuals' wellbeing. This program allowed me to network with experts from across Texas and other states, exchange ideas, and learn from one another. - T3 participant, University of Texas at Arlington, January 2021
