Back by popular demand, IPEC’s next faculty development institute will focus on the fundamentals of interprofessional education (IPE). Attendees will hear presentations from practice experts, participate in team-based activities and peer consultations, learn from success stories, explore resources, identify learner and faculty development opportunities, and develop a programmatic action plan to answer questions such as:
- What is IPE and whom does it include?
- What are the IPE competencies?
- What are the resources and commitments necessary to facilitate change at my institution?
- How would we design an interprofessional curriculum at my institution?
Note: This Institute will not cover advanced topics, such as quality improvement and patient safety, which will be offered in our January 2014 Institute, to be announced at a later date.
Team Composition Requirements
Schools will attend as teams with a minimum of three people and a maximum of five people. Each team will consist of a team organizer and two to four additional team members. At least three health professions must be represented on each team, and at least one team member must be a member of an IPEC health education professions organization (see below). Only one team is allowed per institution. If your institution is affiliated with a healthcare service facility, such as a Veterans Affairs center, a local community health center or an affiliated medical center, please consider adding a representative from that facility to your team. You may also consider adding someone responsible for curricular planning or someone with expertise in interprofessional relationship development.
