IPE Opportunity Proposal

What Is IPE?

IPE differs from multidisciplinary education where students from multiple professions simply learn together; IPE is distinctly defined by intentional objectives of students learning about, from, and with each other and their professional perspectives.

“Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team. This is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength.” World Health Organization 2010
