IPE Initiatives

Over 1,500 health professions students participate in our IPE Intiatives each year. Our major initiatives are described below.

This online module series provides students an easily accessible method to develop foundational knowledge essential for subsequent in-person interprofessional experiences.
UB Interprofessional Forums educate future health care professionals to improve health care delivery through collaboration. The Office of IPE hosts IP Forums in the Spring and Fall.
Simulation is an excellent educational strategy that provide opportunities for interprofessional student teams to develop, practice, and refine interprofessional skills such as communication, collaboration and teamwork within the context of a patient care scenario.
University at Buffalo health professions students expand their collaborative practice beyond UB. Dental Medicine and Nursing students travel to Africa and Greece to particpate in international interprofessional service projects.
