Office of Interprofessional Education

The Office of Interprofessional Education is housed in the UAMS Division of Academic Affairs. The office contributes to the curriculum development, scholarship productivity, research infrastructure and collaborative practice environment across UAMS’ five colleges and the graduate school.

The interprofessional education (IPE) strategic goals align with the Triple Aim philosophy of health care set forth by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. The Triple Aim is:

  • Improve the care of the individual
  • Improve the health of the population
  • Decrease the cost of care

Interprofessional education and collaborative practice are essential to meeting these goals.
