Texas IPE Consortium


Welcome to the Texas Interprofessional Education (IPE) Consortium!

Interprofessional practice and education (IPE) prepares future health practitioners to successfully participate in collaborative, patient-centered care. However, successful implementation of IPE within higher education remains elusive to many institutions. As one strategy to address this, leadership from academic health sciences centers in the state of Texas formed the Texas Interprofessional Education (IPE) Task Force in 2015. Renamed the Texas Interprofessional Education (IPE) Consortium in 2018, the purpose of the consortium is to foster cross-institutional collaboration in order to expand learning opportunities and reinforce value for IPE as a critical aspect of health professions education.
