|The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is pleased to announce that a repeat faculty development institute, reflecting the theme Designing an Interprofessional Curriculum: Planning, Strategies and Successes, is planned for October 14-17, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia in Atlanta, GA.
Programming will be anchored in the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice
released by IPEC last year. The institute provides faculty from across the health professions with the opportunity to meet with peers in plenary and interactive learning sessions focused on building strong programs for team-based learning. Attendees will divide into teams with three to five members representing faculty from a minimum of three health professions. At least one team member should be from a nursing, dental, medical, pharmacy or public health school. All members can be from one institution, or teams can be constructed from health profession schools at two or more institutions committed to collaborating on interprofessional learning. Only one team is allowed per institution. If your institution is affiliated with a healthcare service facility such as a VA, local community health center or 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.
Registration opens on Tuesday, August 7,to interested faculty from all health disciplines. Please note: the entire team must be registered at one time, and they must pay a 50% deposit to guarantee a spot. The registration fee is $995 per person and includes accommodations for three nights; breakfasts and lunches; refreshment breaks; and a welcome reception.
IPEC’s first faculty development program offered in May 2012 reached capacity in less than 8 hours, so faculty wishing to attend this event are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
