IP-X Funding Program History

In 2017, the U-M Interprofessional Exchange (IP-X) Research Stimulus program was introduced by the U-M Health Sciences Council (HSC), which includes deans from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor’s seven health science schools (dentistry, kinesiology, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health and social work).  Additional support is provided by the U-M Office of the Provost.

The goal of the IP-X program is to fund the most exciting and innovative ideas from across the university to promote research on the benefits of interprofessional education and care on health professional learners, health outcomes, patients, and costs. Five projects were funded in year one.
