IMPACT Practice Three-Course Sequence
Starting in their first fall semester, students enroll in three one-credit interprofessional courses integrated into their programs of study.
Interprofessional Practice provides foundational knowledge and exposure to the core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice as students learn together in interprofessional teams of six to seven members.
Interprofessional Projects provides opportunities for IMPACT Practice teams to grow in the core competencies for interprofessional practice. Guided by a faculty mentor, teams engage in learning activities and projects drawn from a menu that includes community and health care delivery system exposure, team-building simulation experiences, and other of the Institute’s interprofessional extracurricular activities.
Interprofessional Ethics anchors the IMPACT Practice curriculum by delving more deeply into the values and ethics that underlie professional practice and providing students with tools for managing ethical challenges they may encounter in practice.
