This article reviews the lessons learned from Texas A & M’s “Disaster Day” training for health professional students across seven disciplines, started in 2008 by the College of Nursing. The authors note the value of the interprofessional educational opportunity this event provides, and discuss how it has “enhanced student knowledge of roles and responsibilities and appears to increase collaborative efforts with other disciplines.”
