Mini‑Courses

Mini-courses offer students an opportunity for interprofessional learning outside of their program curriculum.  Course are offered in online, in-person or blended formats, with students working together in interprofessional teams on projects or cases.  The short courses – normally 6-9 hours – cover a variety of topics that are inherently interprofessional.  Courses are open to all students in health-related programs, and are graded largely on a participation basis. Mini-courses may be used by students to fulfill the IPE curriculum requirements, as outlined by their Faculty.

Register for a mini-course

Click here to register for a mini-course. Before registering, please read the 'Things to Know' sidebar on this page for an explanation of common IPE terms.

Once your IPE registration is received and processed: you will receive an email regarding your status on your request. Your status will be one of the following:

  • Registered: you have been successful in securing your spot in your requested IPE mini course.
  • Wait List: you have been added to a wait list as mini course capacity is limited based on the resources available. Each IPE mini course has reserved space available for each program to ensure interprofessional diversity. Once the reserved capacity has been reached, students are added to the wait list. At this time, you will receive an email asking if you want to be registered in another IPE mini course as a backup. As reserved spots become available, wait listed students will automatically be registered and contacted with their updated status. Reserved space can become available if a student withdraws or the IPE mini course leads open up more space based on registered interest. If no space becomes available, you will be contacted by email.
  • Reminders: will be sent to registered students when the IPE mini course start date is approaching. Please check your schedules to determine that you can participate in the mini course, if not please respond to the email ASAP to allow time for wait listed students to join the mini course.

Any questions please email: iphereg@dal.ca

Withdraw from a mini-course

To withdraw from a mini-course, contact iphereg@dal.ca, at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the course.

Mini-courses are in high-demand, and registration is limited. If you cannot attend a course, please notify us as soon as possible to allow a student from the waitlist can take your place. The names of students who do not attend mini-courses that they have registered for will be recorded, and they may be required to respond to an IPE professionalism committee.
