I-TEAM By Design™ is designed to cultivate and optimize interprofessional skills related to empathy, connectivity, emotional intelligence, humility, and self/other awareness. The essentiality and value of these skills is consistently highlighted through team-based, collaborative healthcare scenarios threaded throughout the course. Learners have the opportunity to develop these skills and strategies through "workouts" in the I-TEAM gym.


Course Overview

This highly engaging course keeps learners actively involved (and entertained) through animated modules that include pause activities for reflection and gamified knowledge checks to reinforce key concepts. The course is comprised of four core modules approximately 45 minutes in length. Shorter introductory and concluding modules set the stage and provide additional resources. In each core module, there are associated "workouts" to try out and practice strategies around concepts such as emotional states, humility, and mindfulness.

Select topics include:

  • Science of the empathy experience as it relates to interprofessional care delivery and building "empathy muscles"
  • Role and impact of emotions, emotionality, emotional labor, and vulnerability in interprofessional team-based healthcare
  • Value of recognizing and engaging with others’ emotional states using high-level communication skills
  • Science of the humility experience and building "humility muscles"
