IPEC Webinar – Student-led Programs: Opportunities for IPE

The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is proud to announce the third event in our 2018 IPEC Webinar Series aimed at highlighting trends and activities in interprofessional education (IPE) and practice.

IPE enables students from different disciplines to interact and learn in a way that prepares them for interprofessional collaborative practice.  Innovative student-led initiatives and special student organizations strengthen existing models for IPE and create new opportunities for students to transform into effective members of a collaborative practice team.  Students are uniquely positioned to help foster practices towards team-based care.

Heath professions students will share remarks on the formation, unique extracurricular activities, challenges, outcomes, and next steps related to their student-led IPE efforts.  Panelists for the webinar include:

  • Lydia Glick, President, Jefferson Students for Interprofessional Education (JSIPE), 2nd Year Student Medical Student, Jefferson University Sidney Kimmel Medical College
  • Alvin Babu, President, New York University InterProfessional Education Group (IPEG), 3rd Year Dental Student, New York University College of Dentistry

Health professions faculty, students, and clinicians will discover best practices that they can use to assist with IPE efforts at their home institutions.


  • Describe the key structure of student-led IPE associations at Jefferson University and New York University
  • Identify developments, lessons learned, and opportunities related to student-led IPE initiatives
