If this is of interest to you, the first step is to complete our upcoming IPE 101 Workshop held two times a year.
NOTE: If you attended the University of Toronto’s ehpic® training in February 2017, you’ve already completed this requirement.

To become a Master Interprofessional Educator, professionals must also:

  1. Attend the center’s IPE 201: Managing Challenging Scenarios Workshop – putting IPE 101 into practice!
  2. Participate in at least three continuing education events at the center per academic year (July-June). (IPE 201 counts as a workshop in the first year.) These could include:
  3. Deliver quality teaching in at least one center-sponsored IPE activity per academic year (July-June). Activities include:
    • First-Year IPE Experience (must participate in all 3 two-hour sessions for a given semester).
    • Standardized Patient Team Experience.
    • Center Curriculum Development Team experiences (e.g., Independent Living Center Experience or Transitions of Care Experience).
    • Other activities as developed by the center.

Those educators who have already fulfilled the above requirements will be invited to become Master Interprofessional Educators in the spring. If you have questions, you can ask one of the members of the center's Professional Development Team

Second Cohort Completes the Facilitating IPE 101 Workshop

Congratulations to the Second Cohort of our Facilitating IPE 101 Workshop!

 

In February 2018, the Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education’s Professional Development Team launched a new workshop adapted from the three day Facilitating IPE 101 workshop held in 2017.

In the condensed one-day workshop participants learned about the IPE competencies and the emerging CIPE longitudinal curriculum, implicit bias and the stereotypes of professions, the culture of teams, and facilitation and debriefing skills. 

10 of the CIPE's academic and clinical partners completed this foundational workshop. Wokshop attendees include: Joan Davis (Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health, AT Still University), Meghan Doherty (WUSM), Susan Fliesher (GSON), Gabriel Gomez (WUSM), Megan Gauthier (WUSM), Kaytlin Reedy-Rogier (St. Louis Integrated Health Network), Sarah Bundren (GSON), Valerie Lunsford (GSON), Deirdre Schweiss (GSON), Justin Chen (WUSM).
