The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) will be hosting faculty teams at an Interprofessional Faculty Development Institute set for April 30-May 2, 2018, at the Association of American Medical Colleges Learning Center in Washington, D.C. The event’s topic is “Interprofessional Education: Building a Framework for Collaboration.”
The UMB Center for Interprofessional Education’s director (Jane Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN) and co-directors (Heather Congdon, PharmD, CACP, CDE; and Dave Mallott, MD) would like to invite you to prepare a brief proposal (no more than one page), including a brief description of the proposed IPE project the team would design and implement as a result of participating in the institute. The team selected to represent UMB will be asked to submit a proposal for seed grant funding from the center for up to $10,000 to support the IPE initiative. (To learn more about the seed grant application and template, visit the UMB IPE website. A template for IPEC proposals is available on the website and below.)
Proposal deadline: Jan. 19
The deadline for proposals is Jan. 19 at 5 p.m. The team members identified in the proposal must represent at least three different health profession disciplines. One member of the team can be from another University of Maryland System school if they are representing a discipline other than those offered at UMB. The team should range in size from three to five members. Please send your proposal via email to Patricia Danielewicz.
All costs associated with attendance will be covered by the UMB Center for Interprofessional Education.
The goal of the IPEC effort is to create faculty champions who can enhance interprofessional curricula, learning experiences, and assessment of learners (to learn more about IPEC, go to its website.) Faculty across the health disciplines will join together to explore how to embed such content into their curriculum. Upon returning to their home institutions, it is expected that workshop participants will help to develop faculty teams with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement an interprofessional education project. The scope of the project must be interprofessional and have a direct link to clinical care. Your project will require a final report within 18 months of the conference.
Please share this information with faculty who might be interested in submitting a proposal.
