Using a one health approach can foster collaboration through transdisciplinary teaching

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Transdisciplinary education is an effective strategy to foster important skills, such as collaboration, needed in the health professions. One Health recognizes the interconnected nature of human health to ecological and animal systems providing a framework for medical educators to create transdisciplinary programs. Medical educators should emphasize One Health as a problem solving strategy and create actionable classroom objectives via distilling One Health into comprehensible concepts. This will foster a collaborative learning atmosphere between human and non-human disciplines leading to positive outcomes for both the student and teacher. Transdisciplinary education is vital to health education and will allow students and teachers to use these concepts in every day practice to become innovators of health care.
