First Year Sessions Curriculum

The First Year IPE Sessions are the introductory component of CIPE's longitudinal curriculum. First-year, professional-level students from all seven academic programs learn about each other’s roles and responsibilities within the healthcare team while also fostering communication and teamwork with the overarching goal of improving the delivery of health care. This experience was piloted in AY14-15, launched in AY15-16 and was revised for AY16-17 – AY18-19 based on feedback from both students and facilitators. This experience will be incorporated into the to-be-developed Phase I of the longitudinal IPE curriculum which is being designed by the Curriculum and Assessment Committee toward rollout in Fall 2019.y1IPE2018
