In May 2023, more than 400 participants from across five continents joined the conference between May 15-18. First launched in 2007 to spark a dialogue between educators, clinicians, students, policymakers and patients on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border, the conference has grown to include an international audience in the last 15 years.

This year’s theme, “Hope and Trust in Health and Social Care,” spoke to the importance of advancing the integration and impact of interprofessional education and collaborative healthcare. Native American education scholar Dr. Gregory Cajete, gave a powerful keynote, and an inspiring plenary was delivered by TeamUHN leaders: Dr. Nicole Woods (Director, TIER), Dr. Maria Mylopoulos (The Wilson Centre), and Dr. Paula Rowland (The Wilson Centre). UHN EVP Education & Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brian Hodges and UHN Executive Director Maria Tassone moderated an international panel and plenary session, respectively.
