Interprofessional Education and Practice at UNC: Where Are We Now and Where Are We Going?

12:00 pm – 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, April 28, 2021, via Zoom

Our school has created and embedded an intentional and progressive interprofessional education and practice (IPEP) system within our curriculum and co-curriculum.  Concurrently, we have established an assessment system using the IPEC Core Competencies for students to evaluate themselves before and after engaging in IPE activities.  This program will help the faculty and other attendees appreciate the flow of IPEP activities and assessment of IPEP skills in our students and how it connects to other health professional schools at UNC.  Our school’s IPEP program is part of the University’s IPEP Core Curriculum which is being adopted by other UNC health professional schools.  The emerging IPEP Scholars program will provide recognition to students who excel “above and beyond” in IPEP opportunities in their academic programs.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe where interprofessional education activities are embedded in required curriculum courses and where interprofessional education appears in elective and co-curricular spaces
  2. Summarize how the schools are using the IPEP Core Competencies to assess student confidence in interprofessional abilities
  3. Outline the design and intent of the University’s IPEP Core Curriculum, and the purpose and structure of the IPEP Scholar program


Target Audience:  This program is designed for preceptors, faculty, staff and trainees who assist students in preparing to work in interprofessional settings.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Friday, April 23, at 5 p.m.
