Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP) 


Individual and Team Paced Collaborative Learning  

Multiple teams talking around long tables


Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP) is a 7-week Spring semester course required of health professions students from dental, medical, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, and physician assistant programs on the Anschutz Medical Campus. There may also be students participating from the anesthesiology assistant program or from public health. Weekly sessions are two hours in length, and involve team discussion, active learning, student reflection, and team submissions. We use a team paced learning method to engage learners in the exploration of IPEC Competency domains:
