Interprofessional Education (IPE) at the University of Washington is comprised of a diverse array of programs and events available to faculty, staff and students from the six UW Health Sciences Schools (Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Social Work) as well as community partners (providers, clinics, medical centers, patient rights organizations, and others). IPE offerings include courses and training events for students at all educational levels (from pre-licensure to advanced practice); thesis projects for graduate students; community-service learning opportunities; IPE leadership and team training for educators, administrators, clinicians/health professionals, IPE facilitators; and much more. Funding for our programs comes from the University of Washington Health Sciences Administration and Health Sciences Schools, as well as private and federal grants.
