The Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education is making its second annual call for nominations for its awards for IPE Innovation and Excellence.

These awards were established in 2019 to recognize students and faculty who demonstrate excellence in teaching, scholarship and/or leadership with regard to implementing and/or developing innovative, effective and sustainable interprofessional education (IPE) or interprofessional practice (IPP) across the U-M health sciences schools and practice settings.

Awardees will receive the following: Faculty award of $1,000; student award of $500 (if the winner is a team, the award will be split accordingly), short presentation at U-M Health Professions Education Day on April 14 and a letter to the awardees’ dean from the Michigan Center for IPE.

“The Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education, with the support of the Health Sciences Council deans, established these awards to recognize the innovative and important work in our community of scholars and health professionals,” said Frank Ascione, director of the Center for IPE. “Our previous experience with these awards indicates that there are many deserving individuals who merit special recognition, and we look forward to honoring them.”
