  • Introduction

  • Inter-professional learning

    • Medical degrees rarely expose students to inter-professional learning.

    • This deficiency can perpetuate unhelpful attitudes and traditional hierarchies within the NHS on graduation.

  • The Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC)

    • Specialised corps providing medical services to the British Army.

  • The Territorial Army (TA)

    • Important part of the RAMC

    • Most RAMC personnel also work in the NHS.

  • The TA provides an opportunity for NHS staff to work together inchallenging training environments

    • Also an opportunity for students to experience a further dimension ofinter-professional learning.

  • Personal reflection

  • How has TA experience influenced my attitudes to inter-professional working?

  • Exposure to healthcare professionals not always encountered on hospital placements

    • Physician assistants

    • Physiotherapists

    • Pharmacists

    • Environmental health officers

  • Social relationship with other healthcare professionals

    • Sporting and adventurous training opportunities

    • Mess (“social bar”) shared by healthcare staff

  • Integrated training

    • Responding as a team to:

      • major disasters

      • multiple casualties

      • nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare

  • Dismantling traditional hierarchies

    • Same uniform worn by all healthcare professionals

    • Army has its own hierarchy

      • Experienced nurses frequently outrank junior doctors

    • Merging of roles

      • Limited staff and resources abroad can require staff to pool their skills
