Coordinator at TVEPS - Centre for Interprofessional Work-Place Learning.

At TVEPS, final-year students from 17 different education programs within the health and social care sciences engage in interprofessional collaboration training. The students in TVEPS are placed in interprofessional groups with 4-5 students from different education programs, and each group focuses on solving a interprofessional task in a municipal work place related to the primary health sector or schools/kindergartens. TVEPS practice entails 20 hours work for the students, and almost a thousand students engage in this kind of interprofessional collaboration training each year with us in TVEPS. We are in contact with more than hundred different workplaces in this context, mainly in the municipalities Bergen and Øygarden.
