Format: Participants will engage with national leaders in acquiring the building blocks for IPE oriented to improving population health. Teams will spend significant time interacting within their own groups to plan, build, design, assess, and act on their IPE goals as well as communicate effectively about IPE. Opportunities to interact with other teams in information sharing and networking, including poster presentations, will further enhance team learning. Pre-course readings will provide context and stimulate questions for exploration during the institute. Daily electronic evaluations will serve to check on learning and reactions to each day’s events for continuous quality programming enhancement.
