Interprofessional Practice and Education (IPE) Funding Application
Interprofessional Practice and Education (IPE) is developing rapidly at UI Health, which includes the seven health science colleges, the University of Illinois Hospital and the federally qualified Mile Square Health Center locations. UIC’s IPE mission is to create transformational change in health professions education and health care service delivery by delivering evidence-based learning experiences that build collaborative competence and foster interprofessional scholarship and collaborative practice across academic programs, clinical services and community partners with focused attention to the pressing needs of underserved individuals and populations.

- Provide educational learning experiences that promote competence in interprofessional collaborative practice across the seven health science colleges at UIC.
