The purpose of this study was to determine if student participants in an interprofessional geriatric team meeting self-reported increased knowledge in interprofessional team collaboration competency. A faculty developed simulated scenario that included standardized patients and student volunteers from nursing, social work, and recreational therapy was live streamed to a large classroom where the remaining students watched. 191 students participated and all three disciplines showed significant improvement on the Interprofessional Collaborative Competency (ICCAS) attainment survey. This innovative way of delivering a simulated experienced allowed almost 200 students to have this experience simultaneously.
