Current UW IPE Offerings

IPE Competency Modules

The UW CIPE Modules are developed in collaboration with our schools/program partners based on the Interprofessional Practice Collaborative (IPEC) Competency Domains: Interprofessional Teamwork and Team-based Practice, Interprofessional Communication Practices, Values and Ethics for Interprofessional Practice, and Roles and Responsibilities for Collaborative Practice.

The intent of this series of modules is to advance students’ acquisition of collaborative practice competencies as defined by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) in order to meet escalating accreditation standards for interprofessional education (IPEC, 2016). Each UW CIPE Module targets one IPEC core competency and a number of related sub-competencies.

UW CIPE acknowledges that achieving competence in collaborative practice is a complex, developmental, life-long learning process. That said, the overarching goal of each module is to provide students with core knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will facilitate development towards competence in interprofessional collaborative practice. These modules are integrated into different courses at each program.  Check out the listing of each of these four modules below.
