Please be aware of our sixth offering of the SYNC Program, an interprofessional team-based program. Teams are eligible to attend at no-cost (including travel) if they focus their capstone project in one of the key areas identified by the Virginia Department of Health in chronic disease or cancer. Further information is available at www.SYNCVA.org. Details are below and attached.
As healthcare continues to change, there is a growing need for impactful leadership and interprofessional teamwork. SYNC is an innovative, team-based learning program providing healthcare professionals with hands-on experience in interprofessional collaboration, creative problem solving and leadership fundamentals. In SYNC, teams not only learn in the classroom but apply the lessons by addressing real-life challenges in their practices, clinics and communities.
Four Sessions, One Team, One Challenge
SYNC consists of four in-person workshop sessions and additional virtual learning. Healthcare teams gather for workshop sessions led by nationally recognized practitioners and put their education into practice through the SYNC Capstone Project. During the project, teams identify a current challenge in their clinic, community, or practice and work together to create a solution that drives tangible results.
Registration is open for teams of two-five participants. Organizations can send more than one team, but each must include one physician and one nurse, in addition to any other participants you choose to send. Visit the SYNC website at www.syncva.org for more details on cost, the availability of full tuition reimbursement, CME/CNE credits and further program information.
