The Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC) of the University of Colorado was intentionally designed to facilitate collaborative, interprofessional education. Interprofessional Education is the next step in realizing this long term vision of transforming the delivery of health care to meet the needs of the new century. The Interprofessional Education (IPE) initiative
on the Anschutz Medical Campus is changing in exciting ways – merging The Center for Bioethics and Humanities Ethics course and Interprofessioanl Education Programs, Interprofesioanl Education and Development course (IPED) efforts into one.
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.
