New Director, UW CIPE

Hossein Khalili

The Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education at the University of Wisconsin (UW CIPE) is pleased to welcome our new Director, Dr. Hossein Khalili.

Dr. Khalili has joined us recently from Canada where he was a Professor and Program Coordinator for several years. As a recognized scholar, expert, and leader in the field of Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (IPECP), Dr. Khalili has focused his research and scholarship on designing, implementing, and evaluating IPECP initiatives, IPE Simulation, and patient engagement and partnership. His innovative dissertation study was the first ever to compare interprofessional socialization versus the current profession-specific socialization, among students from seven different health programs. Based on this study, Dr. Khalili developed and tested the Interprofessional Socialization Framework (IPSF) to assist educators, researchers, managers, and policymakers in developing educational programs, curricula, policy, and procedures designed to socialize health program students in interprofessional collaborative practice to develop Dual Professional and Interprofessional Identity. His IPSF work has been widely used in the U.S. and the World, with the recent utilization by the Health Professions Accreditors Collaborative & National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education in their recent publication of the “Guidance on Developing Quality Interprofessional Education for the Health Professions” (Feb, 2019).

Dr. Khalili has conducted (as PI or Co-I) more than 20 research projects with over $6 million in funding, has published over 35 journal papers/reports, and presented more than 90 abstracts and invited speech in local and inter/national conferences. Dr. Khalili has demonstrated his excellence in integrating research, teaching, and leadership and has received numerous prestigious awards including, but not limited to: Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Nomination for Outstanding Achievement ACE Nursing Graduate Guarantee (NGG) Award in 2015; School Nomination for the President’s Distinguished Achievement Award for Research/Innovation in 2013; Western FHS Recognition of Excellence, 2010 and 2016; Western Teaching Honour Roll, 2010 and 2015; the Provincial Nurse Educators Interest Group Award from Registered Nurses’ Foundation of Ontario, 2010; Graduate Research Thesis Award Western, 2010; the Recognition of Excellence in Research award; Dean’s Award for Research Excellence – 2nd Place, 2008.

Dr. Khalili is the co-founder and co-lead of the InterprofessionalResearch.Global, and also serves as a Board Member on the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (CIHC), the Global Confederation for Interprofessional Practice & Education, and the CASN Accreditation Bureau. Welcome Aboard!
