This article describes a collaborative training program using a simulated/standardized patient approach. Developing simulated/standardized patients for collaborative teams helps in matching local culture, education, and technology levels, as the authors have done in a project in Kyiv, Ukraine. The training develops teamwork trust, and cohesion among family practice doctors, nurses, psychologists, and social workers. This training model fits with the World Health Organization's mandate to create integrated primary care treatment teams.
