In this session, original research will be presented on interdisciplinary teacher teams working on integrated medical education. These teams are composed of a combination of physicians and basic and social scientists. A general background will be provided on how integrated education is organized at Maastricht University, and why we need to work with teacher teams that have to collaborate in spite of the diverse disciplinary backgrounds. We will then present the studies that were conducted in this context, aiming to understand the way interdisciplinary teacher teams function in our context and how this is related to the perceived quality of education. Based on our results, we will present a model of interdisciplinary teacher team functioning as well as stimulating and inhibiting factors at different levels. Finally, we will present how findings from our studies were implemented in a faculty development workshop on leader identity development for interdisciplinary teacher team leaders.
