IPE Core Curriculum

This three-part curriculum is aimed at developing a foundational understanding of other health professionals’ roles and responsibilities, and the skills needed to effectively collaborate with a diverse health and social services team. The curriculum is designed to help students meet their programs’ accreditation requirements for IPE. During the 2023-24 academic year, we are excited to offer a number of engaging topics for students to choose from, with content experts from around the country developing and facilitating these sessions.

Mobile Health Outreach

The Harborview Medical Center Mobile Health Outreach (HMC MHO) Program is a free clinic staffed by student volunteers and clinicians. It provides supportive bridge-to-care services to residents of two Seattle Tiny House Villages, in collaboration with our community partner, Low Income Housing Institute. The HMC MHO meets the community where they are, and offers basic outreach and engagement, referrals, and acute and transitional medical care.

Through participation in this year-long cohort program students will learn key components of age-friendly, patient-centered, team-based healthcare of older adults through three interprofessional telehealth case sessions and opportunities for hands-on work in the community.  Click here to learn more about the program and to register for 2023-24. 

The Listening Project

The Listening Project is a collaboration between the UW IPE Program and community-based efforts, such as the Seattle/King County Clinic. The project is a unique interprofessional education opportunity in the community that is intended to cultivate future health professionals’ communication skills, empathy, and the perceived value of listening to patients’ stories.
