The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus was intentionally designed to facilitate interprofessional education. Education buildings are shared amongst the 8 health professions programs on campus and students regularly interact both inside and outside the classrooms. At the heart of the education is the Fulginiti Pavilion which houses the Center for Bioethics and Humanities as well as the Interprofessional Practice & Education Program.
IPE Program Goal:To improve population health, quality of care, and reduce health care costs through the creation of a patient-centered, collaborative, practice ready workforce with competencies in: quality and safety, values and ethics, and teamwork and collaboration in the context of systems and systems based practice.
Our Longitudinal Goal: IPE curriculum is being integrated into preclinical and clinical training for ALL University of Colorado health profession students and will establish, teach and evaluate campus-wide student competencies in teamwork, collaborative interprofessional practice and quality and safety, with a particular focus on vulnerable and underserved populations.
