What does the IPE designation mean?
The University of Michigan interprofessional education (IPE) curriculum is expected to grow rapidly over the next 5 years. We envision a curriculum that:
- provides opportunities for all eligible students to achieve IPE competency as defined by their individual program by graduation
- is based on a framework of 5 core competencies spanning three levels of development
- is flexible enough to meet all IPE competency needs for all students
To achieve this goal, we are working to build a menu of IPE opportunities that includes not only traditional semester-based courses, but also clinical and field experiences, service learning, simulations, online learning modules and more.
