Save-the-date for the next Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Interprofessional Faculty Development Institute, taking place May 22-24, 2019 at the AAMC Learning Center in Washington, DC. IPEC’s 16th institute is returning to the popular theme of building a framework for interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice.
The purpose of the institute is to facilitate multi-disciplinary teams in developing an institutional-based project to undertake interprofessional curricular change in their home institutions. Through guided experiences and resource utilization, teams will create an implementable action plan to develop projects focused on improving learner competence and skills through an interprofessional learning model.
Registration will open in mid-October 2018. Those interested in attending are encouraged to begin assembling their teams now, as space is limited. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
