August 20, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The 2017-18 annual report from the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education (IPE) is now online; hard copies are available by request to IPEcenter@umich.edu.

The photo-rich report recaps recent collaborations by students and faculty at the 10 health science schools on U-M’s Ann Arbor, Flint and Dearborn campuses. It introduces the 20 faculty members in the newest cohort of U-M Interprofessional Leadership Fellows (for 52 total to date), and it details achievements and team projects by the first two cohorts.

Information is updated for interprofessional courses, simulations, student groups and partnerships on campus and beyond. Reports are included from large gatherings of faculty (Health Professions Education Day) and students (Town Hall). Also highlighted are the five teams of faculty awardees in the inaugural Interprofessional Exchange (IP-X) Research Stimulus, as well as the two teams awarded inaugural Community Engagement for Interprofessional Education grants (in conjunction with the U-M Edward Ginsberg Center).

The Michigan Center for IPE coordinates interprofessional education and collaborative care efforts at U-M, increasingly with far-reaching leadership for transforming how future health leaders are prepared. Support for this work was initiated by a five-year, $3-million grant from the provost’s Transforming Learning for the Third Century Initiative, matched by additional support from the deans of the seven U-M Ann Arbor health science schools: School of Dentistry, School of Kinesiology, Medical School, School of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, School of Public Health, and School of Social Work.
