Substitution Policy

Institute Location


To guide faculty teams in creating actionable plans for implementing interprofessional projects that advance university-based, post-baccalaureate interprofessional curricula, learning experiences, and assessment in collaboration with community partners for improving population health.  Projects will focus on cultivating productive academic-practice partnerships, building faculty expertise, and enhancing university-based, post-baccalaureate student learner competence in interprofessional education that prepares graduates for collaborative practice towards enhancing population health in targeted communities.

Refund and Cancellation Policy

The following are required (individual members may fit more than one category):

  • Two members who represent two different health professions, with at least one representative drawn from the six IPEC professions;
  • One member with a firm foundation in interprofessional education (IPE), IPE relationship development, and collaborative practice; and
  • One member with institutional responsibility for curricular planning.

A member with expertise in public health is strongly encouraged to provide population health principles and methods to each team. Priority registration is granted to teams bringing a community-based partner (e.g. state or local public health department, clinic, social services agency, hospital, health center, payer, etc.).  

Participants will engage with national leaders in acquiring the building blocks for IPE oriented to improving population health.  Teams will spend significant time interacting within their own groups to plan, build, design, assess, and act on their IPE goals as well as communicate effectively about IPE.  Opportunities to interact with other teams in information sharing and networking, including poster presentations, will further enhance team learning. Pre-course readings will provide context and stimulate questions for exploration during the institute.  Daily electronic evaluations will serve to check on learning and reactions to each day’s events for continuous quality programming enhancement.

Please contact Shelley Porte at for additional information.​
