2023 IPEC Poster Fair

On November 29, 2023, IPEC held its third Virtual Poster Fair Showcase aimed at sharing and highlighting the research and scholarship of teams who have developed and implemented interprofessional education for collaborative practice (IPECP) projects.

A special thank you again to our faculty, clinical, and student presenters for sharing their experience and expertise and to our facilitators for helping moderate constructive and open exchanges. 50 teams from 49 different graduate and undergraduate health professions programs from across the country and internationally from India and Brazil gave their time and resources to contribute to the showcase.
