IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING TRAVEL
All participants must book their travel itinerary to attend the entirety of the Institute. Please schedule all outbound flights to depart at least 2 hours AFTER the Institute conclusion on Friday afternoon, May 24.
The program is highly interactive. Early departures will affect not only the individual, but other participants in the Institute. Institute participants are asked to plan accordingly. For more information about travel recommendations and logistics, see the Institute Location and Transportation details below.
To provide post-baccalaureate health professions faculty and their interprofessional colleagues both quality time and dedicated space for guided learning, team-based planning activities, and consultation with experts and peers in order to emerge with a programmatic action plan for IPECP.
Learning objectives for the Institute are as follows:
1. Identify resources and commitments necessary to facilitate IPECP at one’s institution.
2. Examine best practices in IPECP curriculum planning and design for use in one’s program.
3. Create learner assessment strategies in IPECP.
4. Develop faculty skills in IPECP.
5. Communicate the team’s IPECP objectives to decision makers.
In addition, registered teams and individual participants will be assigned preparatory readings and participate in Institute-related assessments.
Pre-course reading activities will be assigned prior to the face-to-face workshop, and the entirety of the Institute will afford opportunities for networking and a community of focused, collegial collaboration.
Participants will also receive on-site peer coaching and feedback on their IPECP projects from expert speakers and staff facilitators.
Upon returning to their home institutions, workshop participants will be better prepared to develop faculty teams with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement an IPECP plan.
Please note that it is not necessary to register as a team. Individual participants will also be accepted into the program.
Interprofessional teams can consist of up to five members. The following conditions are highly encouraged, but not required (individual members may fit more than one category):
*If your institution is associated with a healthcare service facility such as a VA, local community health center, or affiliated medical center, or a partner organization, such as a local health department or community-based agency, please strongly consider adding a representative from that facility to your team.
Participants will engage with national leaders in acquiring the building blocks for IPECP. Institute attendees will spend significant time planning, building, designing, assessing, and acting on their IPECP goals, as well as communicate effectively about IPECP.
The Institute will provide opportunities to interact with colleagues, speakers, and staff in information sharing and networking, including poster presentations. 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.
The fee for the program includes the registration fee, breakfasts, lunches, and three nights lodging at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel located at 999 9th Street NW, Washington, DC 20001. Hotel accommodations are single occupancy rooms. Each team member will receive his/her own room. Please note that you will be responsible for dinner each night.
