DRAFT Curriculum

A Customizable Curriculum Design for Interprofessional Education in Health Professions

The Tennessee Interprofessional Practice and Education Consortium (TIPEC) is a group of health professionals from academic health science centers who collaborate to improve the health and well-being of the population in Tennessee communities through interprofessional education and practice. The TIPEC created a classroom-based interprofessional education (IPE) working group to develop a core curriculum that could be utilized by all health care professional schools across the state of Tennessee throughout all years of training. The members of the classroom-based interprofessional working group are professional volunteers from academic health science centers who have a common goal of threading IPE throughout their curriculum.
