Group of Texas IPE Consortium Members Standing on a Staircase

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.

Fiesta® San Antonio started in 1891 as a one-parade event as a way to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. That historic commemoration still takes place, but for more than a century, Fiesta® has grown into a celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse cultures. Fiesta® has evolved into one of this nation’s premier festivals with an economic impact of more than $340 million for the Alamo City. Funds raised by official Fiesta® events provide services to San Antonio citizens throughout the year.

As universities strive to implement IPE into didactic, simulation, and experiential learning environments, it is becoming increasingly important to have outstanding ipe faculty facilitators who can help interprofessional learners gain the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for collaborative practice. The most successful and competitive institutions know how important it is to be committed to ongoing IPE facilitator training and development. The Texas IPE Consortium’s IPE Facilitator Training Course provides faculty with the tools and strategies they need to engage interprofessional teams of learners and maximize the effectiveness of their IPE training programs. This engaging, experiential course provides an overview of the role of the ipe faculty facilitator, plus opportunities for practice using a wide range of tools and techniques. Through 6 hours of online pre-work and a one-day live training, faculty will gain the knowledge and skills to be an effective IPE facilitator, as well as will be able to promote organizational changes and collaborative leadership, which will support promotion of IPE within the institution. The on-line pre-work course will open January 20, 2020. 

Who Should Participate: It is the ideal course for faculty, instructors, and/or preceptors who want to improve their ability to engage teams of learners; introduce IPE concepts and skills; support learners in the development of knowledge, perceptions, and skills for collaborative care; and measure outcomes of ipe learning activities.
