Center for Health IPE Committees
Preparing health professions students to be competent in interprofessional education and collaborative practice is a national mandate, a requirement that is now fully integrated into the accreditation standards of health professions programs. Through the committees below, we work with faculty, staff, and students across UT Austin to integrate intentional IPE in health professions' curricular and co-curricular experiences.
Health Professions Advisory Committee
The Health Professions Advisory Committee consists of academic deans, department chairs, and faculty who provide input on the accreditation and programmatic IPE needs for their respective programs; facilitate implementation of interprofessional learning experiences; and cultivate a supportive environment that encourages IPE innovations among their stakeholders.
IPE Curriculum Committee
The IPE Curriculum Committee consists of health professions faculty across UT Austin. The committee's overall charge is to implement an IPE program that is systematically integrated into required curricula and meets the IPE accreditation standards for all health professions programs.
Student Health Interprofessional Practice and Education Committee (SHIPEC)
SHIPEC is a student-led committee whose mission is to lead interprofessional student forums to advance collaborative learning and scholarship and promote team-based, person-centered health care within the health care and health care-related professions. CHIPE is the advising body for SHIPEC. If you are in a health professions program and would like to learn more about serving on this committee, please send us an email.
