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, the 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.

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 Certificate 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 in-person 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 the promotion of IPE within the institution.

Approximately 6 hrs of online pre-work must be completed at least 5 days prior to the training.

Requirements: To obtain an IPE Facilitator Certificate, participants must complete the online pre-work before the event and actively participate in the entire in-person training, complete the simulation/skills practice experiences, and submit a post-event evaluation. If a participant is unable to complete all components of the training for any reason, the participant is not eligible to receive a certificate. In order to complete or remediate any missing requirements, the participant would have to re-register and pay for the training again at a future offering.

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.
