X6: Experience Day 6: VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam: TeAMS-training program: a hospital wide multidisciplinary-interprofessional training program for non technical skills in realistic healthcare settings

Wednesday, 2nd May
09:00-17:00

VUmc believes in outstanding patient care, high-quality teaching and innovative research. VUmc combines a belief in personal, honest and respectful treatment of people with healthy ambition and fundamental curiosity. VUmc has three core values that encapsulate its identity and provide guidelines for thought and action in decision-making and policy development. They also guide individual staff members in their work and personal relationships. These three core values are:

  • Dedication

  • Attention to detail

  • Ambition


The TeAMS-program (Training and Assessment of Medical Specialists) aims to improve non-technical skills necessary for working in multidisciplinary-interprofessional teams. The philosophy of the program is: “train the teams that work together, train scenarios relevant for those teams, train skills that can be applied immediately”.
In this experience day we’ll take you through our three different types of training in the actual training setting, explain our learning goals and set up and most important we let you participate in the trainings. And of course there is room to meet our trainers and developers of this programme.

Three training-types have been created for:

  • Acute situations: simulations training (SIM-T)

  • Complex situations: complex situation training (CST)

  • Regular situations: multidisciplinary-interprofessional meeting training (MDM-T)
