Foundational Interprofessional Events

CTIPH events align with national IPEC Core Competencies, the University of Arizona Health Sciences Strategic Initiatives for next-generation education and the University of Arizona Strategic Plan. There are several topics to choose from that are available throughout the year. UAHS students from the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy are required to attend four foundational IPEs. University of Arizona Public Health students are required to attend two IPEs.

Several IPE topics are available for any University of Arizona, Arizona State University, or Northern Arizona University student, and a few IPE topics are limited to certain professions. These IPE events are 2-4 hours in length. Students who complete the requirements of an event receive a CTIPH certificate of completion in D2L. 

Student and facilitator registration links are available on each page for each event.
