IPEP Committee

Interprofessional Education & Practice (IPEP) Committee members are appointed by the WSU Applebaum Dean with input from the department chairs. The committee includes representatives from each program that participates in IPE events. In addition, two student members will serve a yearlong term and will rotate among the health professions involved. Student members will be identified by respective committee members and leadership.

The functions of this committee are to:

  1. Develop and maintain at least one annual IPE event for students across multiple programs at the college for students to collaboratively learn about, from, and with each other to improve health outcomes.
  2. Create and maintain an inventory of interprofessional accreditation requirements and offerings across the curricula of the different academic programs at WSU Applebaum.
  3. Foster assessment for IPE activities and encourage opportunities for scholarship as applicable.
  4. Devise a longitudinal plan to enlist and develop faculty to create and engage in interprofessional education activities.
  5. Provide support for partnership projects implementing interprofessional practice in clinical services provided to the community.
  6. Identify resources needed to support IPE initiatives across the college.
