INTERPROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION IN HEALTH CARE

FACULTY OF MEDICINE
Department of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE FACULTY / DEPARTMENT
More than a school, Université Laval is an entire community in the heart of Quebec City, a complete university recognized for its leadership and its culture of excellence both in teaching and research.

The Department of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine (DFMEM) of Université Laval's Faculty of Medicine is calling for applications for a professor and researcher in the field of interprofessional collaboration in health care.

Over the last few years, interprofessional collaboration in health sciences / care and education has been a booming sector at a provincial, national and international level. The Faculty of medicine is part of the Integrated Centre for Health Sciences Education with the Faculties of Nursing and Pharmacy and interprofessional collaboration is one of our core values. This value is becoming increasingly integrated in our teaching and in our professional practices. The Collaborative Network on Interprofessional practices in Health and Social services (RCPI) ( http://www.rcpi.ulaval.ca/ ), created in 2009, demonstrates very well the importance attached to collaboration in our university.

The Faculty of medicine has consolidated all the educational services under the Education and Professional Development's Office (VDPDPC) which focuses on educating and supporting faculty members. The VDPDPC gathers five areas of expertise: pedagogical development, simulation learning, evaluation, research in health sciences education and professional development. The sector "Research in Health Sciences Education" is emerging. It currently includes professors (PhD in Education, MD-MA, MD) and collaborators, all engaged in health sciences education. Actually, three research programs are under development: clinical supervision, simulation learning and evaluation. The significant increase in our research activities leads us to recruit two other professors-researchers to become key players in academic research in health sciences education.

We are therefore looking for a professor-researcher in the field of interprofessional collaboration in health care to join the VDPDPC team and to contribute to the teaching and research efforts within the Faculty of medicine and the Collaborative Network on Interprofessional Practices in Health and Social services (RCPI).
