Nursing, medical, and pharmacy students discuss a topic at the annual Interprofessional Health Conference.

Welcome!

Welcome To The University of Wisconsin Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (UW CIPE)! The UW CIPE strives to transform health education and practice through interprofessional collaboration and teamwork to improve the Quadruple Aim (Better Health, Better Care, Lower Cost, and Improved Work Experience) in Wisconsin and beyond.

The UW CIPE is a campus-wide Center that was established in 2016 by the Office of Provost and the Deans of the four health sciences schools ( School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH), School of Nursing, School of Pharmacy and School of Veterinary Medicine) to assist the health sciences schools (and other health-related programs) in integrating and advancing interprofessional practice and education (IPE) within their curricula. The UW CIPE, as the central hub for IPE at the university and beyond, is also partnering with the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (NEXUS IPE), the Big 10 IPE Academic Alliance, and the Global Network for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice Research (InterprofessionalResearch.Global).

UW IPE Inventory Survey

In line with the UW CIPE’s new strategic planning, we are conducting a Cross-Campus IPE Gap Analysis this summer.  In doing so, the UW CIPE is surveying different programs/departments/schools/ centers to provide us with information about their current (and potential) IPE-related programs/courses/activities/workshops/seminars/conferences/opportunities to develop a UW IPE Inventory list. The results will be used to do an IPE mapping across our campus, as well as to list the offerings on the UW CIPE Web site. To learn more and complete the survey, please visit UW IPE Inventory Survey!
