UNMC Interprofessional Education Day

Dear Faculty:

Please join us for the:           Fall 2012 UNMC Interprofessional Education (IPE) Day!
When:      August 15th, 2012
Where:     UNMC Campus
Time:        2:00pm-4:00pm
Who:        Faculty and students from Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy, Public Health and Allied Health

Interprofessional Education (IPE) introduces shared learning and practice early on, and helps prepare students for collaborative practice.  IPE is best defined as occasions when two or more professions learn with, from, and about each other to improve collaboration and quality of care.

This event will include over 450 students from the Omaha campus.  The Lincoln campus will host a separate event for the Lincoln Dentistry and Nursing programs.  A diverse faculty body representing all colleges and schools at UNMC is essential.

Faculty volunteers are needed to facilitate the small groups.  Two faculty training sessions are planned to provide faculty with preparation to facilitate a group of 10 interprofessional students.

Sessions will be held:

Thursday, August 9th                       9:00-11:00                           Room MSC 4053
Monday, August 13th                      1:00-3:00                              Room MSC 4053

Attendance at one of the faculty development session is encouraged.  If you have facilitated IPE day small groups in the past, the faculty development session will provide you with current IPE Day content and process updates.  Dr. Devin Nickol will facilitate the training sessions.

This is a great opportunity to interact with faculty and students from the various colleges and learn about their programs and perceived professional roles.  If you can participate, or would like a copy of the facilitator’s guide for an overview of the session format, please contact Giovanni Jones @ giovanni.jones@unmc.edu.

Thank You
IPE Day Planning Committee

Note: no clinical expertise is required to facilitate this session.

College of Medicine Curriculum Goals

The College of Medicine’s goal for the medical degree program is to prepare students for success in primary care or specialty fields. Throughout the course of the medical degree program, students will:

  • Learn basic science, behavioral science, and clinical science concepts to integrate and apply to the diagnosis, treatment and management of patients:
  • Learn and demonstrate the clinical and procedural skills necessary to meet the initial expectations of any residency program;
  • Acquire and exhibit skills necessary for scholarly activity and life-long learning;
  • Exhibit the attitudes and behaviors that are expected of medical professionals;
  • Learn and demonstrate collaborative and leadership skills to participate in inter-professional teams; and
  • Learn and exhibit written and oral communication and interpersonal skills to provide high-quality patient care.
