Teamwork Workshops

Let's elevate your team's success!  The Office of Interprofessional and Interdisciplinary Education and Research will host monthly teamwork workshops aimed at unlocking your team's potential for high-impact work, cultivating excellent communication and interpersonal relationships, and fostering personal growth.

Workshops will be held on the third Wednesday of the month from 10am - 12pm, alternating between CWRU's main campus and the Health Education Campus.  All faculty and staff are welcome to participate!
