About the seminar:

Interprofessional team-based learning (IPTBL) is an innovative teaching initiative which aims at promoting active learning and collaborations across disciplines. The students work in teams and learn how the various medical specialities resolve clinical cases together. IPTBL gives students from various disciplines an opportunity to develop friendship and work with pre-professionals of other expertise before they practice in the “real world”.

In this seminar, Dr. Lap Ki Chan, the Principal Investigator of a UGC-funded project on IPTBL, will share with you the key features of this new pedagogy, as well as his pioneering experience in implementing IPTBL with 500+ students from HKU and PolyU across 7 different programmes related to medical health care.
