The 12th Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Institute featured its first IPEC poster contest from May 3-5 at the Spring 2017 institute in Washington, DC.  Fifteen of the 23 institute teams competed. The inaugural IPEC Best Poster Award went to SUNY Upstate Medical University team members Ann S. Botash, Carol A. Recker-Hughes, Bambi A. Carkey, Darren J. Carboni, Lynn M. Cleary for “Embedding Interprofessional Education into a Learning Experience: Creating Twelve Tips.”  As the poster’s related manuscript is still under review, their poster is not available for viewing online with the other posters in iCollaborative (, but will be included on the site in the future. 

The next IPEC institute, focused on a special advanced IPE topic, is set for October 18-20 in Long Beach, CA. General registration will open on May 31. View more information and register.
