A team of educators represented A.T. Still University (ATSU) this week at the Interprofessional Education Collaborative Institute “Education, Building a Framework for Collaboration.” The event was held Oct. 7-9, 2013 in Chicago, Ill.
The October 2013 Institute focused on the fundamentals of interprofessional education (IPE). Attendees heard presentations from practice experts, participated in team-based activities and peer consultations, learned from success stories, explored resources, identified learner and faculty development opportunities, and developed a programmatic action plan to answer questions about IPE.
