WALTER EPPICH

With a background in pediatric emergency medicine, Prof Eppich used qualitative and mixed methods approaches to study topics related to interprofessional collaborative practice, team reflection, healthcare debriefing, and team adaptation. He earned a PhD in Medical Education from Maastricht University. He has co-authored over 90 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. He collaborates with team and organizational psychologists to study team processes both in and outside of healthcare. In 2018, he traveled to Antarctica to perform ethnographic field observations and in-depth qualitative interviews to investigate how Antarctic research teams adapt to ever-changing conditions in extreme environments. His research program seeks to delineate the contribution of workplace talk and team interactions to learning and performance.
