Interprofessional Education (IPE) Requirement for UAMS Graduate School Students

Interprofessional Education (IPE- http://ipe.uams.edu/ ) is an important component of our students’ academic progression. IPE allows students across campus to learn and interact together thereby increasing communication and understanding across all health and research professions. There is a formal IPE curriculum framework that is offered here at UAMS, and all of the colleges and the Graduate School participate.

The Graduate School requires all students who have entered a MS or PhD program from fall 2015 and beyond to complete the Exposure phase of the IPE curriculum prior to graduation. However, students are encouraged to attend other IPE activities as well. The Exposure phase requires participation in 2 activities.

  1. The IPE Exposure workshop.
  2. An Exposure Bridge activity. Activities include movies, book readings, and observations. A list of these activities can be found here. Registration is required for some activities.
