Student leadership in interprofessional education is known to bring positive influences to learning collaborative skills for nursing and other health professional trainees. Yet a scarce number of student-led interprofessional activities are described in the literature. This report describes one student-led interprofessional education workshop that is facilitated by personnel from a faculty interprofessional education program. Undergraduate students (N = 23) from nursing, allied health and social service training programs at one university in Toronto, Canada, participated in a one-time workshop regarding conflict management style. Findings from our evaluation survey showed that the workshop was well-received by participants and demonstrated utility and feasibility. Such outcomes provide supportive evidence for fostering student leadership in designing and implementing interprofessional teaching.
