Biography

Valentina Brashers, M.D., FACP, FNAP, professor ofnursing and attending physician in internal medicine, is the founder and co-director of the University of Virginia Center for Academic Strategic Partnerships for Interprofessional Research and Education (Center for ASPIRE), which provides leadership and oversight to numerous IPE experiences for students, clinicians, and faculty at all levels of training.

She is known nationally for her service and scholarship in the area of IPE and collaborative care, and served for many years as vice president for interdisciplinary care for the National Academies of Practice where she received the Nicholas Cummings Award for Contributions to the Interprofessional Healthcare Field.

Dr. Brashers currently is a co–principal investigator for numerous intra- and extramural IPE grants and serves as a consultant, editor, expert panel member, presenter, and workshop leader in many educational, clinical, and policy settings. Among her current efforts are leading a HRSA-funded interprofessional patient safety and quality improvement curriculum for Doctor of Nursing Practice students alongside medical residents, and hosting the UVA site for the Macy-funded national Train-The-Trainer Faculty Development Program (T3 FDP).
