A unique high-quality longitudinal virtual certificate program, the Virtual December 2020 IPEC Institute will open a wide and ongoing discussion on our collective local and national IPE experiences and challenges, especially with regard to our students and patients.

New Collection on iCollaborative

Clinical Teaching and Learning Experiences without Physical Patient Contact

This resource collection was built in response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s significant impact on the teaching and learning of health professionals. Designed by diverse educators, this working collection features clinical learning experiences, which can be readily used or easily adapted for specific, local settings, without the need for physical patient contact.​

We actively seek submissions of learning experiences, particularly those that support patient care, but do not involve direct patient contact. Once submitted, the resources will be included in a collection that will be free and widely available to the community of medical education.
