Interprofessional Education Vision

To effectively address the changing landscape of health care, the College of Health Sciences is dedicated to educating students with an interprofessional education (IPE) focus. This is accomplished through understanding current health [care] issues and creating new solutions through shared leadership, education, service, and scholarship.

Interprofessional Education (IPE) Definitions

“When students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.”

World Health Organization

“Interprofessional education involves educators and learners from two or more health professions and their foundational disciplines who jointly create and foster a collaborative learning environment. The goal of these efforts is to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes that result in interprofessional team behaviors and competence.  Ideally, interprofessional education is incorporated throughout the entire curriculum in a vertically and horizontally integrated fashion.”
