Transforming Interprofessional Education Through Inclusion in University Core Curriculum
Sustainability and integration into the wider institution are common concerns for IPE programs. The IPE team at Saint Louis University (SLU) has engaged in a collaborative process of integrating IPE courses and outcomes with a new university-wide core curriculum for all undergraduate students. This seminar will share a Core Curriculum Framework, outcomes, and essential criteria and the process of working across the institution to align IPEC competencies to University Student Learning Outcomes and strengthen IP learning as a contributing partner to the overall goals and outcomes of a SLU graduate. The presentation will describe the iterative process and the transformation that has occurred during the development of shared goals, shared language, broadening the dialogue and understanding of IPE in university level dialogue. The seminar will outline the process, discuss how this process has strengthened the IPE courses to be more highly valued across the health professions and contributed to even stronger transformational learning experiences of the students.
As a result of this seminar, participants will be able to:
1) Identify components of a core curriculum framework,
2) Discuss methods and language to expand understanding of IPE beyond the health professions,
3) Identify opportunities for professional development and new collaborations for teaching and learning,
4) Discuss examples of integrating IP learning outcomes that align with IPEC, Health Professions Accreditation, and a university core curriculum.
