With the increasing complexity of healthcare delivery and patient case mix, and the aging population, health professionals are expected to function more often and more effectively as members of multidisciplinary teams. Competency based medical education (CBME) advocates that the professional development of doctors should be fostered from the start of medical school through to medical practice and with continuing professional development. Strategies for developing teamwork among health professionals and students range from minimal, implicit to explicit (Earnest et al., 2017). Considering this continuum of medical education and the spectrum of educational strategies, we propose a framework for the programmatic approach which can be used in developing competence in ‘collaborative clinical practice’.
