On February 1, 2022, UW CIPE hosted its first Award Ceremony to present the inaugural Elaine Mischler M.D. Interprofessional Education (IPE) Scholarship Award and Joint UW CIPE and Teaching Academy IPE Distinguished Fellowship. On behalf of the UW CIPE and its Awards and Fellowship Taskforce, Dr. Khalili welcomed the Awardees and their guests to the Ceremony.
Elaine Mischler M.D. Interprofessional Education (IPE) Scholarship Award
Dr. Elaine Mischler was then welcomed and presented her work in interprofessional education and practice over the past nearly four decades, that included receiving a grant from the Federal Bureau of Maternal and Child Health with the mission to provide education of graduate students from different disciplines in the care of the chronically ill child using pulmonary disease as the model. The grant provided 1.5 million dollars for 5 years and launched a dedicated effort to promote interprofessional education in the Pediatric Pulmonary Center. Her work with the Women’s Philanthropy Council, which is a group of philanthropic women who provide major gifts to the University of Wisconsin-Madison in their areas of passion and in their own names, elicited her partnership with the UW CIPE in generously providing the Center with the new award. The two inaugural Awardees of the Mischler IPE Scholarship Award include:
- Rachel Sobiesk, BSN, RN, Pediatric Primary Care DNP Student
- Katie Tredinnick, DVM/MPH Candidate
Their projects are highlighted here.
