The CU Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (CU CIPE) aims to foster interprofessional collaboration at CU Anschutz and graduate team-ready practitioners with the skills needed to collaborate as a member of an interprofessional team. In this effort, the CU CIPE offers faculty, staff, and students from all academic units, institutes, and programs to engage in the Interprofessional Open Campus Program (IOCP).
The IOCP connects students, faculty, and staff members from across the CU Anschutz campus, regardless of professional background, in programing meaningful for the individual and the campus community. The IOCP consists of a menu of program offerings that resonate with the campus community. The College of Nursing, the Schools of Dental Medicine, Medicine, and Pharmacy, and the Anesthesiologist Assistant, Physician Assistant, and Physical Therapy Programs all require their first-year students to participate in the IOCP each fall. Additionally, IOCP offerings aim to be inclusive of all members of the AMC community whenever possible.
