Interprofessional Education Grant

Under the leadership of Provost Terence R. Flotte, MD, and the oversight of the Office of Educational Affairs, the Interprofessional Education Committee is currently seeking proposals for the development of innovative approaches to educate learners across the spectrum of health professions, clinical and basic science education in concert with interprofessional collaboration. IPE grant priority areas for development include interprofessional simulation or other team-based active learning opportunities and learning community development or programs and activities which promote IPE partnerships across the three schools and GME, along with the UMMS clinical partner and educational affiliates.

“The UMMS educational program must prepare our learners (students, residents/post docs, faculty and professionals) to function collaboratively on teams that represent the diversity of health professionals and the biomedical sciences.”

For the purpose of the IPEG program, interprofessional education must represent two or more “professions” from any of the groups as defined below.

  • Licensed health care professions including, but not limited to, Medical Doctors, Doctors of Osteopathy, Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Psychologists
  • Doctoral or master level degree recipients in the biomedical sciences, faculty or professional staff

Priority areas for this call:

  • Team-based active learning
  • Simulation

Participants may include any combination of students, postdoctoral trainees, residents/fellows, faculty or professional staff.
