The Office of Interprofessional Education will be hosting a fun and engaging Escape Room this summer for all new healthcare professions students entering TTUHSC. This beginner escape room is an adventurous way for new students to meet others across our various healthcare professions, improve interprofessional teamwork and communication, and collaborate together to solve puzzles that will ultimately lead to a discharge plan in a simulated patient case. Team members are not required to have discipline-specific knowledge and teams will be provided clues as needed.
The IPE Escape Room is a perfect opportunity to learn more about TTUHSC, work with an interprofessional team of students from various professions, and learn more about the importance of interprofessional education and practice in healthcare.
Escape Room Details:
To escape the room, interprofessional teams of students will work together to solve an introductory clinical case and then discuss the teamwork and communication skills used. Participants can build their own team of 5-6 students or can be placed on a team. At least two professions must be represented on each team. Teams will have one hour to complete the challenge. Following the completion of the challenge or at the end of the hour, a debrief will take place allowing teams to discuss their escape room experience and evaluate their teams performance. Please allow additional time for the team discussion.
Registered participants who complete the Escape Room challenge will receive a certificate that can be given to their program directors for IPE graduation credit.
To register as an individual, or for more information, please contact the Office of Interprofessional Education at email@example.com or call us at (806)743-2028. We will make every attempt to place you on a team.
