2022 UW IPE PoD Cohort

The UW CIPE is pleased to announce the 2022 UW IPE PoD Cohort! The 2022 Cohort includes 7 cross-professional students from five programs: Medicine, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Public Health, and TBSN Nursing (Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing). Congratulations and Welcome!

A Welcome and Orientation session was held on December 12, 2022, with the participation of all 8 of the 2022 UW IPE PoD Cohort students.  Students from the 2021 UW IPE PoD Cohort and members of the UW CIPE Badger and PoD Taskforce also joined the session, welcoming the students. The session included small group activities for the students to get to know one another, a team build challenge, and orientation. As they start their PoD journey, they will stay in close contact with their cohort peers learning with, from, and about each other.

What IPE means to me: Our goal as healthcare professionals is to help our patients. Interprofessional education breaks down the barriers that can prevent collaboration within the healthcare team and promotes positive relationships to provide the best possible outcome for our patients.

What IPE means to me: Interprofessional practice allows collaboration among people who share the same goal(s) but have different skills and backgrounds. This increases the effectiveness and scope of health-related work, leading to better outcomes for our patients and communities.

What IPE means to me: Interprofessional practice and education allows us to more effectively collaborate between professions, which I believe is a necessary component of excellent patient care. As a future healthcare professional, the IPE curriculum will allow me to become the best nurse I can be; not only for my future patients, but for my future coworkers and peers as well.
