Poster Collection

IPEC Institute Posters

Committed to advancing substantive interprofessional learning experiences that prepare health professionals for enhanced team-based care of patients and improved population health outcomes, IPEC hosts two team-based Faculty Development Institutes a year (Spring and Fall) for teams to identify an institutionally based project and develop an implementation plan to embed interprofessional education within their health professions schools. This collection includes posters that describe the development and implementation of these projects.

IPEC Poster Fair

Based on the success of the Institute poster sessions, IPEC began hosting an annual peerreviewed virtual poster fair in 2021 with a nationwide call for abstracts. Recognition of excellence was expanded across specific groupings/themes. To date, 113 posters have been showcased across 11+ themes, and there have been 25 winners. Poster themes included curriculum design, peer teaching and learning, simulation-based IPE, virtual interprofessional learning, clinical learning and collaborative practice, capacity building, interprofessional leadership, system and statewide IPECP, complex care, patient safety, and health equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The IPEC Poster Fair provides an opportunity to share interprofessional education for collaborative (IPECP) projects and practices implemented by health professions schools and programs and their colleagues. IPEC welcomes posters sharing interprofessional projects and practices across all disciplines, and at various stages of development and implementation.
