Interprofessional Competence Course

CHP 415-515: Foundations of Interprofessional Practice

The first Interprofessional Course was established at Pacific University in 2009.  During the strategic planning process, the college integrated strategic goals for interprofessional practice, education and research that also leveraged existing interprofessional initiatives with other programs and colleges across the university. Today, the Interprofessional Competence Course (IPC) has grown into a required course for all first-year health profession students.

This course promotes the development of essential skills and attitudes needed in order to function effectively in an interprofessional healthcare community. Throughout the course, professional first-year students will attend classes and work on an experiential group activity to increase their knowledge in the four core competencies of IP work as outlined by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC).

Students will be randomly placed into one of thirteen cohorts throughout the Spring semester. The schedule is as follows:
