CIPES Steering Committee

Interprofessional education (IPE) continues to become an increasingly important aspect of professional education. The number of activities being developed on the LMU campus continues to grow. In an effort to keep momentum with the campus wide meeting that took place September 2017 and in light of multi-disciplinary activities that have and continue to be developed, the purpose of the IPE Steering Committee is to promote and facilitate an environment of interprofessional collaboration amongst health profession students that emphasizes roles and responsibilities, values and ethics, teamwork, and interprofessional communication to optimize patient care.
