Abstract

Health care delivery is in a stage of transformation and a meaningful change in provision of care must also be accompanied by changes in the educational process of health care professionals. This article lays out a roadmap to better prepare obstetrician-gynecologists (ob-gyns) to succeed in interdisciplinary women's health care teams. Just as our current educational programs emphasize the development of competent surgical skills, our future programs must encourage and support the development of communication, teamwork, and leadership skills for ob-gyns. Formal integration of these fundamentals at all levels of the health care training continuum will create an educational system designed to equip all practitioners with a basic level of knowledge and provide opportunities to acquire additional knowledge and skills as needs and interest dictate. Integral to the implementation will be the evaluation of the effects of the contributions of interprofessional education on patient, practice, and health system outcomes. Successful demonstration of value will lead to the sustainability of the educational programs through recognition by physicians, health care teams, academia, health care systems, and payers.
