Who We Are
The Center was created in 1997 with funds from the University of Washington Initiative Fund and expanded in 2002 with funding from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. The Center’s original goal was to provide educational opportunities for students to learn means of interprofessional practice and to be prepared to take their places in current and future healthcare systems.
In 2010, the Center merged resources with several other interprofessional initiatives being funded at the University to form a collaborative to educate students and faculty to be future leaders and facilitators in IPE. The Board of Deans from the six Health Sciences Schools provided additional funding for this initiative in 2016 that lead to the creation of new areas of focus for CHSIE and the development of an IPE Curriculum Committee.
