21 educators named U-M Interprofessional Leadership Fellows
A record 21 health science educators were recently selected as the third cohort of the Interprofessional Leadership (IPL) Fellows faculty development program.
The fellows come from the U-M schools of dentistry, kinesiology, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, social work and LSA, as well as U-M Flint’s schools of nursing and health professionals & studies. During the 18-month program, the fellows will participate in a campus-based interprofessional learning community facilitated by the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) and embark on team-based projects.
The IPL fellows traditionally apply as individuals and then work in interprofessional team. This year for the first time, a team of four scholar-educators was also selected together as a team. These four faculty fellows from nursing, public health and engineering are part of the U-M Center for Occupational Health and Safety Engineering (COHSE). Because the COHSE curriculum already brings together learners of multiple professions, they hope to use the IPL program as a launching pad to make COHSE programs truly and intentionally interprofessional.
