The WSU Executive Interprofessional Education Committee develops, implements and evaluates a program of interprofessional health sciences education that serves the needs of the WSU colleges of Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences – including the departments of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology and Speech and Hearing Sciences.
This committee will function within the office of Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. The goals include developing a plan for a progressive model of interprofessional education – classroom, laboratory, simulation, clinical and community service settings. These learning experiences will incorporate the IPEC Competencies and meet or exceed accreditation expectations, and will include students from other programs and universities and colleges.
The committee will oversee evaluation and assessment and present an annual report to the deans and vice president and Chancellor. This committee will be a vehicle for effective communication across colleges and externally to support and enhance the learning experiences, encourage IPE scholarship, and engage health care providers and systems in the continuing development of effective collaboration and team skills. The Executive Interprofessional Education Committee will work collaboratively with the IPE Steering Committee, CIPHERS, Community Engagement and Service Learning, Continuing Education and the Interprofessional Education/Collaborative Practice Advisory Committee.
