For several years the Faculty of Health has supported a robust offering of interprofessional education (IPE) mini-courses offered by faculty members, students, staff, and practice colleagues across the Faculties of Dentistry, Health, and Medicine. We believe interprofessional collaborative learning opportunities offered by IPE mini-courses enhances preparation for professional practice and research careers.

Participation in an IPE Mini-Course may count towards satisfying the IPE requirement for Faculty of Health students (IPHE 4900 or 5900), as well as for Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry.  IPE mini-courses are offered without cost to students in the three health-related Faculties. 

In person and synchronous online course delivery is preferred, due to the interprofessional foundation of live, real-time interaction. Please also consider how the course can include distance student engagement. Dalhousie supports the following online platforms for content and live/recorded sessions: Brightspace and Microsoft Teams.

Students register for mini-courses directly from a link on the IPE website ( If space is available and with approval from course designers/facilitators, learners from additional Dalhousie Faculties, academic institutions or practice partners may be able to register for IPE mini-courses. Please note, programs should be aware that priority registration is for students from Health, Medicine and Dentistry. Programs should also be aware that there are times that mini courses are cancelled due to operational changes, low enrollment, or unforeseen circumstances. For this reason, programs should not rely on particular mini courses to meet curricular needs.
