Mission and vision

Our commitment to IPE stems from the college's dedication to preparing students to effectively and efficiently practice in interprofessional teams and render patient-centered quality care.


We envision a future where the faculty and students of WSU Applebaum serve as transformational leaders advancing Interprofessional Education and Practice (IPEP) throughout the university. Collectively striving to measure the impact of IPEP on didactic and experiential learning as well as the Quintuple Aims of healthcare including improving the patient and care provider experience, population health outcomes, costs, and health equity*.


The mission of the WSU Applebaum IPE Committee is to facilitate the creation and delivery of collaborative events that provide students and faculty with transformative interprofessional learning experiences advancing quality patient-centered care.
