Interprofessional Education (IPE)

The goal of the IPE program is to train the faculty of schools in the health profession, graduate departments, or other programs, to better equip them to teach their students to address the health care needs of People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) through interprofessional education and collaborative practice.

Our regional partners have programs and partnerships with accredited schools and graduate departments or programs of medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health, allied health, pharmacy and/or behavioral health to develop or enhance curricula, utilizing interprofessional team-based learning, to train faculty and build capacity to prepare future health care professionals to provide for the health care needs of PLWH. Particular attention is given to minority-serving educational institutions.

At the end of the program, students are encouraged to obtain HIV-focused professional certifications, and success is measured by the number of students that go on to provide HIV care upon completion of the program.
