[Download this fact sheet]

Under the leadership of Provost Terence R. Flotte, MD, and administrative oversight by the Office of Educational Affairs, the Liaison Committee for Interprofessional Curriculum is currently seeking proposals for the Interprofessional Education Grant (IPEG) Initiative.  The goal of IPEGs is to stimulate the development of innovative approaches and programs in Interprofessional Education at UMass Chan, across the spectrum of health professions, and the clinical and basic sciences.

“The UMass Chan educational program must prepare our learners (students, residents/post docs, faculty and professionals) to function collaboratively on teams that represent the diversity of health professionals and the biomedical sciences.”

For the purpose of the IPEG program, interprofessional education must represent two or more “professions” from any of the groups as defined below.

  • Licensed health care professions including, but not limited to, Medical Doctors, Doctors of Osteopathy, Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists
  • Doctoral or master level degree recipients in the biomedical sciences, faculty or professional staff

Participants may include any combination of students, postdoctoral trainees, residents/fellows, faculty or professional staff from the T.H. Chan School of Medicine, Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing or Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Collaborative teams of faculty from more than one school would be welcome.
