Title The Role of Faculty Mentors and Perceptions of Servant Leadership on Interprofessional Socialization Within Physical Therapy Education
Background/Purpose Identifying educational strategies promoting interprofessional socialization, the beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes underlying socialization toward interprofessional collaborative practice, is critical. Although faculty mentors influence students' socialization process and servant leadership is suggested to support collaborative care, investigations exploring these concepts in physical therapy (PT) education are limited. Consequently, this study examined 1) the relationship between students' perception of servant leadership by PT faculty mentors and interprofessional socialization and 2) if the presence of a faculty mentor was associated with differences in interprofessional socialization.
Methods Guided by social learning theory, this cross-sectional survey study occurred at a single PT program (n=170, 94%). The Interprofessional Socialization and Valuing Scale (ISVS-21) and the Servant Leadership Measure (SL-7) were used to measure interprofessional socialization and perceptions of servant leadership by informal faculty mentors, respectfully. Multiple linear regression, in the presence of student demographic control variables, was used to obtain the semi-partial correlation between the SL-7 and ISVS-21 (n=114). Mann-Whitney U test was used to compare ISVS-21 scores of those with (n=117) and those without faculty mentors (n=53). Significance was accepted at p<0.05.
Results The SL-7 was associated with a significant proportion of ISVS-21 scores (R2= .17, p=0.01) and the only significant contributor to ISVS-21 estimates (╬▓=.358, p<0.001), with a significant and positive semi-partial correlation (sr=.342, p<0.001). Further, ISVS-21 scores were significantly increased for participants with a faculty mentor compared to those without (p=0.03).
Discussion Findings underscore the value of faculty mentors and servant leadership to inform educational strategies and faculty development programs promoting interprofessional socialization and collaborative care.
