Team-based care is a cornerstone of primary care. However, in medical school and residency, trainees get little formal education on this as a concept and how it works in an outpatient setting. Faculty members from the University of Minnesota created a one-day workshop, "Essentials of Ambulatory Care," to help residents in primary care specialties as well as pharmacy and nursing students pursuing advanced degrees better understand the roles and responsibilities of members of the primary care team. The workshop also helped them develop new skills for doing patient-centered visits. This article describes the workshop and what we learned from those who participated in the first session.
