This is a 12 episode, knowledge-based, video series developed to educate both preceptors and students regarding their participation in experiential rotations in an Interprofessional setting. Each individual video episode is 5-10 minutes in length and builds upon the next.  The series follows multiple health professional preceptors including nurses, pharmacists, physicians, speech-language-pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists as they precept their students in both a hospital and extended care setting. Through a combination of inappropriate and quality Interprofessional  interactions, attendees will learn key principles regarding orientation, feedback, teamwork, and dealing with difficult preceptors or students.  At moments throughout each episode, two preceptor and two student experts provide humorous interactions and share insight on how they would deal with each learning situation. Each individual episode ends with two important preceptor and two student pearls.
