Interprofessional Education

Interprofessional education (IPE) occurs when two or more professions learn with, about and from each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.

Benefits of IPE

IPE prepares students from different health professions to work in a collaborative, team environment to provide highly effective patient- and population-centered care. Interprofessional teams enhance the quality of patient care, lower health care costs, decrease inpatient lengths of stay and reduce medical errors. Patients receive safer, high-quality care when health professionals work effectively in a team, communicate productively and understand each other's roles.
