Interprofessional Health Education (IPE)

During the course of their studies, students will participate in an average of at least six different meaningful and relevant interprofessional collaborative learning experiences as determined and approved by the School (see the tabs below for a list of possible IPE activities). The experiences will include undergraduate/graduate students or professionals from a total of at least four different health professions with which there are natural affinities or linkages in the professional environment. At least one of these IPE experiences will be in a practice setting. Practicum placements often provide students with the opportunity to work on interprofessional teams. Interprofessional teams may include a variety of professionals such as parents/caregivers, teachers, resource staff, psychologists, early education specialists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, otolaryngologists, and/or radiologists, to name a few.

In accordance with the requirements of SCSD, students will complete the IPE tracking form (see tab below) on an annual basis. The tracking form maps interprofessional collaborative learning experiences on to school requirements. The tracking form will be graded by the School on a Pass/Fail basis. Completed tracking forms should be given to the SCSD Administrative Secretary at the end of each academic year.
