Welcome from the Director

UW CIPE Director Dr. Hossein KhaliliWelcome to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education! The UW CIPE strives to transform health care through interprofessional practice, education, and research! As our Mission, we work collaboratively locally, nationally and globally to champion, integrate, and advance Interprofessional Practice and Education (IPE) to achieve the Quadruple Aim: better health, better care, better value, and better work experience.

In the past few years, the UW CIPE, in collaboration with our program/school partners, has made some significant progress in moving forward the IPE Agenda at UW–Madison. Together, and in line with the UW CIPE 5-year Strategic Directions, we have been successful in building/expanding upon the UW IPE infrastructure towards advancing IPE integration and sustainability at the University. In doing so, number of campus-wide IPE programs and initiatives have been developed, enhanced, piloted, and implemented, including the UW IPE Path of Distinction (PoD), IPE Badger Program, IPE Healthy Aging Initiative, IPE Competency Modules, IPE Knowledge Exchange Series, IPE Faculty Development, Joint Dual IPE Distinguished Fellowship, Mischler IPE Student Scholarship, IPE Systematic Assessment, and Annual Report.  Thank you all for your ongoing support and contribution.

As we enter the next phase of the UW CIPE Strategic Directions, we are focusing on promoting, advancing, and integrating IPE into simulation, clinical, and community experiences. The goal in the next couple of years is to develop, and then begin to implement, a Framework for IPE Experiential Learning at UW-Madison. Strong and close collaboration and partnership with our different programs/schools and partners will continue to be critical in creating and implementing such an IPE Experiential Learning Framework. We look forward to continuing our collaboration and partnership.
