The Institute has pioneered the use of teaching TeamSTEPPS concepts through simulation, and with its unique interprofessional teaching structure, has become a high-demand training location. The UW Medicine Regional Training Center incorporates clinical and nonclinical simulation into the trainee experience. Using instructors from across departments and specialties (clinical and nonclinical), UW promotes multiple perspectives in its teaching model to provide an interprofessional learning environment.
