The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) will be hosting faculty teams at their 2017 Fall Institute scheduled for Oct. 18-20, 2017 in Long Beach, Calif., with focus on advancing and sustaining your program for collaborative practice.
The UMB Center for Interprofessional Education Director (Jane Kirschling) and Co-Directors (Heather Congdon and Dave Mallott) would like to invite you to prepare a brief (no more than one page) proposal, including a brief description of the proposed IPE project that your team will 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 $15,000 to support the IPE initiative.
The deadline for proposals is Friday, June 16, 2017 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 System of Maryland university if s/he represents 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 overall goal of the IPEC effort is to create faculty champions who can enhance interprofessional curricula, learning experiences, and assessment of learners. 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. Projects require a final report within 18 months of the conference.
Please share this information with faculty who might be interested in submitting a proposal.
