The Center for Interprofessional Education is accepting applications for the Sept. IPE Faculty Award. The priority deadline is Sept. 25. The application can be found on the Center for Interprofessional Education’s website.

Faculty Award Information

Faculty Awards in Support of Interprofessional Education (IPE) encourage and build a community of faculty members across the schools of the University of Maryland, Baltimore and throughout the University System of Maryland (USM) who have interest and expertise in interprofessional education. This includes, potentially, national and international IPE activities.


Faculty Awards may be used for a variety of endeavors that can include, but are not limited to:

  • Travel to other institutions to study IPE
  • Regional and national meetings focused on IPE, including poster and podium presentations
  • Educational products focused on IPE
  • Other faculty development activities that are inclusive of UMB students from two or more schools

The funds must be used within a one-year window and any individual is limited to one award per year. Faculty Awards may provide a one-time salary enhancement stipend, if allowed by the UMB school and appropriate for the proposed activity.

Award Management

All UMB faculty members are eligible to apply for a Faculty Award of up to $2,000 annually. Other faculty from USM require a partner from the UMB faculty and are eligible for up to a $1,000 award.

A two-page proposal, including a budget, should be submitted via email to the Center for Interprofessional Education. Please include a title for the award along with a description of the proposed activity and its potential to further IPE at UMB.

If you plan to use standardized patients through the Standardized Patient Program, please contact the director, Nancy Budd Culpepper, for additional information and visit the website.
