Abstract

A needs assessment was conducted regarding an interprofessional faculty development program for promoting excellence in education. Nursing and medical faculty and administrators (N = 156) were surveyed about perceived need, program curriculum, and delivery. The results indicated strong support for the program, particularly related to teaching/learning strategies, leadership, and scholarship. Nursing faculty rated some topical areas significantly higher than did the medical faculty, including innovative classroom teaching, educational technology, interprofessional education, diversity/inclusion, and mentoring graduate students.
