This scholars’ program is intended to support faculty from the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) professional schools in expanding their knowledge and expertise related to providing interprofessional education (IPE) to advance UMB’s mission.
The program requires a 10 percent commitment over two years (24 months), including involvement in the Foundations of Interprofessional Education and Practice course in the first year, development of an IPE initiative in the first year, and implementation of that initiative in the second year. This IPE initiative should advance UMB’s offerings in the areas of IPE immersion or IPE competency. See examples of funded initiatives here.
Faculty scholars will be eligible to apply to attend an Interprofessional Education Collaborative Institute and to apply for a seed grant and/or IPE Faculty Award, learn more. Up to seven President’s Interprofessional Education Faculty Scholars will be selected for this two-year program.
