Interprofessional Education

IPEC 2017 Spring Institute – Call for Proposals

The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) will be hosting faculty teams at an Interprofessional Faculty Development Institute set for May 3 – 5, 2017, at the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Learning Center at 655 K Street, NW, in Washington, D.C., with focus on building a framework for interprofessional education.

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 the 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 $10,000 to support the IPE initiative. Learn more about the Seed Grant application and template.

The deadline for proposals is Friday, Jan. 20, 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 of Maryland System university if s/he is 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 at

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. Learn more about IPEC. 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.
