Aligning Facilities, Resources, and Academics
An institutional commitment to interprofessional teaching and research as a pathway to enhanced research success and patient outcomes also results in greater student and faculty satisfaction. This session, led by Rachel Nelan and Lisa Kalynchuk, the University of Saskatchewan's interim associate dean, interdisciplinary health research, will describe how Flad helped align health sciences programming and research, with evolving institutional governance, in a single facility over a 10-year period of renewals and new building development. This required planning at all levels of the institution, the development of a new resource model to support the activities, and the implementation of a new administrative office to lead activities and encourage colleges to work toward institutional goals.
