UW CIPE is pleased to announce awarding 75 WI AHEC Scholars with the AHEC Scholar Badge. The AHEC Scholar Badge is a formal digital UW-Madison Recognition Award issued by UW CIPE through its UW CIPE Badger Program. Congratulations to 2020 WI AHEC Scholar graduates on achieving this Interprofessional Practice and Education (IPE) milestone!
The AHEC Scholar Badge recognizes the achievement in gaining interprofessional knowledge, skills, and leadership in becoming interprofessional practitioners. The COVID-19 pandemic clearly demonstrates that interprofessional collaboration and teamwork among and across professions and organizations are essential not just to address the Quadruple Aim, but also to save lives. The AHEC Scholar Badge Awardees are interprofessional champions who could take IPE to the next level by integrating interprofessional team-based practice into everyday practice in healthcare delivery system.
The AHEC Scholar Badge, as an IPE Badge approved by UW CIPE, serves as virtual credential that can be showcased via personal profile and/or social media (LinkedIn), and be shared with potential employers as a way to help articulate the skills gained from completing the badge criteria.
