Mission: IPEC transforms health care education by fostering community-centered, collaborative learning and interprofessional practice.
The University of New England Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC), formally established in 2010, solidifies UNE’s historic commitment to interprofessional academic and community-based programming which prepares the next generation of health care leaders for team-based practice. Students representing the full range of health professions programs work with one another through interactive collaborative activities including team-based case conferences, simulations, service learning, research and scholarship, global immersion experiences, arts and health projects, and classroom activities. Through this work, students from UNE's 13 different health professions programs come to better understand the roles of other members of the health care team and develop skills to work more effectively to improve quality, safety and patient-centered care. Faculty and staff are instrumental in facilitating, modeling, and sustaining interprofessional learning, serving as student mentors, course designers and faculty trainers.
