Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education
at Washington University Medical Campus

About the Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education

To further the goal of improving patient safety and quality in health care, three institutions – Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College, St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis – created the Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education at Washington University Medical Campus in August 2015.

The center is located in the new, state-of-the-art Academic and Research Building at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. The center will enhance the ability of faculty to function as interprofessional educators, advance curricular opportunities of programs within the three schools, conduct educational research in interprofessional education, and enhance patient outcomes.
