Health Professions Week, Sept. 26–30, is a free week of events to help students learn about 19 health professions, including pharmacy. Explore and ask questions: What is it like to be a healthcare practitioner? What are the hours and demands? How is one profession different from another? What education do I need? How do I get there?
How your institution can help and get involved:
Is there a particular interprofessional education challenge that is weighing on your mind? Have you found an innovative approach to IPE? Whether you are searching for answers or have expertise to share, consider joining the IPE Community of Practice (CoP).
The mission of the IPE CoP is to facilitate collaboration and innovation for the teaching, practice, and administration of interprofessional education, as well as promote the scholarship of IPE. The design of this pilot community allows it to serve as a hub for sharing of ideas and information.
