Welcome to the Office of Interprofessional Education and Practice

The dynamics of the current healthcare environment and the needs of the communities we serve to call for a collaborative approach as we focus on learning how to provide the safest and best quality of care for all persons. The Office of IPE&P endeavors to create and implement educational experiences to address the four domains within the interprofessional collaborative practice: values/ethics, roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, teams, and teamwork. As we work together to learn and apply these Core Competencies of Interprofessional Collaborative Practice, we emphasize the value of each profession and the role interprofessional teams play in addressing the Triple Aim of improving population health, reducing costs, and enhancing the patient experience of care. Faculty strive to enhance the student experience through interprofessional collaboration with the ultimate goal of meeting the Quadruple Aim of improving the work-life of health providers.

We invite you to peruse our site and explore opportunities for interprofessional growth with us.
