Current UW IPE Offerings
UW CIPE Badger Program
In line with the UW CIPE 2019-2024 Strategic Directions and as part of the UW CIPE Education Strategic Priority, the UW Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (UW CIPE) has established its Badger Program.
As a branch of the UW–Madison Canvas Credentials, the UW CIPE Badger Program provides focused interprofessional practice and education (IPE) academic training with fewer academic requirements than a typical degree and/or certificate program. Through the UW CIPE Badger Program, we recognize and award formal digital Badges to learners who participate in and successfully complete designated IPE offerings and activities at UW–Madison and its partners.
Each IPE Badge, provided through the UW CIPE Badger Program, consists of a specified set of academic training and/or experiences that focuses on different aspects of interprofessional practice and education in healthcare to advance Quintuple Aim (better care, better health, better value, better work experience, and better health equity). Successful completion of an IPE badge signifies the achievement of competence in the specified domain and is recognized by the awarding of a digital badge (an official award) from UW CIPE. Completion of IPE Badges approved by the UW CIPE Badger Program will also be counted towards the UW IPE Path of Distinction at UW–Madison.
The IPE Badges serve as virtual credentials that can be showcased via personal profile, social media (LinkedIn, Facebook,…), and shared with potential employers as a way to help you articulate the skills you have gained from completing the badge criteria.
Please note: The badging service through UW–Madison has recently undergone a transition from UW–Madison "Badgr" Badges, (prior to Fall 2022), to the current Canvas Credentials, (post Fall 2022). As is such, there are two links below with all of the UW CIPE Badges that have been awarded.
