IPEC Interprofessional Faculty Development – May 22-24, 2019

To assist public health faculty in complying with accreditation requirements to assure students graduate with interprofessional competencies, ASPPH is a proud backer of the 2019 Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Faculty Development Institute in Washington, DC. Held at the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Learning Center, the training will take place May 22-24.

Returning to the popular theme of building a framework for interprofessional education for collaborative practice (IPECP), the institute will gather health professions faculty, collaborative partners, expert presenters, and staff facilitators. Dr. José A. Capriles-Quirós, associate dean for academic affairs, University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus, San Juan, Puerto Rico, representing both public health and medicine, will present on “Building Learning upon IPEC’s Core Competencies” on the first day of the institute. View the agenda with confirmed speakers.

The early bird registration fee is $1,595 for individuals. After March 15, the conference fee will increase by $100. The fee for the program includes registration, breakfasts, lunches, and three nights lodging at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel located at 999 9th Street NW, Washington, DC 20001.

“We are excited to roll out a new institute feature this May,” said Dr. Lucinda L. Maine,  IPEC president and executive vice president and CEO of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. “The Spring 2019 conference is the first to welcome single participants in addition to the customary teams of faculty and administrators. The agenda is perfect for collaborative teams developing or advancing their interprofessional education (IPE) programs and for individual faculty who may have been tapped to help begin or grow their institution’s IPE program. It is our goal to bring together as many educators and care providers as possible to conduct the work of bridging together IPE and collaborative patient-centered practice.”

Although not required, faculty registrants are strongly encouraged to bring their practice partners to the Institute in order to expand and refine skills in IPECP and to strengthen teamwork. Attendees will hear strategies, models, and key lessons to assist them with their projects focused on building an impactful, sustainable IPECP program.
