Let’s Develop Interprofessional Curricula: How many steps does it take???

Led by:

Scott Reeves, PhD, MSc, PGCE
Founding Director, Center for Innovation in Interprofessional Healthcare Education, UCSF

While health professions educators are familiar with developing curriculum within their own profession, they may be new to collaborating with other professionals to develop interprofessional education (IPE), which requires attending to fundamental processes not part of discipline-specific curriculum development.

After a brief overview of the traditional curriculum development process, the instructor reviews the social science literature to highlight underlying factors fundamental to IPE collaboration. Participants work in interprofessional groups to design a curricular offering selected from a set of proposed topics.  Participants share challenges they have experienced and work with the instructor to connect the challenges with the IPE literature. Attendees receive a guide to the steps for IPE curriculum development.

At the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe the additional steps to consider for development of IPE curriculum.
  • Develop the outline for an IPE offering.
  • Analyze the development process for attention to the IPE curriculum development steps.
