Interprofessional Continuing Education
The University of Minnesota, Interprofessional Continuing Education organization is a Jointly Accredited Provider of quality continuing education in medicine, nursing, and pharmacy. As a joint provider, we design, develop, implement, assess, evaluate, and accredit activities for individual or multiple health professions. Through our activities and services, we aim to support the continuing professional development of health care providers so they can learn from, with, and about each other to improve patient outcomes.
To advance patient-driven, team-developed, and learner-focused interprofessional education among a broad range of healthcare professionals. Embedded in the strong tradition of Minnesota healthcare innovation, we align Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) with identified public health priorities and design relevant content that is informed by evidence-based practice and research to improve individual health and well-being.
The IPCE vision is to educate the entire healthcare team to help improve patient care.
