Students from URI, RIC, and Brown University consult during an IPE training at Brown Medical School
Interprofessional Education (IPE)
The Warren Alpert School of Medicine (AMS) at Brown University, the University of Rhode Island (URI) Colleges of Nursing and Pharmacy have developed an Interprofessional, student-focused workshop that introduces students to a team-based, patient-centered care experience. An IPE work group consisting of deans, faculty, and other administrators have developed this bi-annual simulation program. They are currently working on a framework and content for fully integrating IPE into the curriculum.
Currently nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, social work, and medical students are involved.
SriAHEC will also insure that the simulations and other interprofessional exercises promote cultural competency and are inclusive so that students are prepared to work in RI’s increasingly diverse communities.
