UNMC's Interprofessional Education (IPE) program allows students to learn and work together in order to optimize their unique strengths and increase the quality of care for their patients.
Our program seeks to provide students with the skills needed to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing health care field, particularly taking into account a greater emphasis on team-based care, the growth of innovative care models such as the Patient-Centered Medical Home, and the focus on measurable quality and safety outcomes.
IPE requires involvement from students and educators representing all the health care disciplines. As such, it offers unique opportunities for collaboration across departments, colleges, and campuses.
