To address the need for interprofessional communications training for health science students, we developed and tested a virtual world (Second Life) for the delivery of a mock patient interview session. Health science students enrolled in an interdisciplinary course were assigned to interprofessional teams drawn from nine different health science disciplines. With the guidance of a facilitator, students planned and enacted a patient admission conference and a discharge conference with a standardized patient and family member. Our best practices session will review “lessons learned” centered around three aspects of the virtual learning context: a) Pre-session and in-session procedures for students, b) Pre-session and in-session procedures for facilitators, and c) Use of technologies and technical support to accomplish key activities within the session.
