“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
