IPE Curriculum Committee

We are the central steering committee for interprofessional education at UNMC.

Membership consists of at least two members from each college and a student representative. The committee meets monthly and receives input from the student subcommittee.

The group is responsible for the design and implementation of statewide IPE events held in the fall and spring, which serve to introduce IPE to first- and second-year students from all programs. In addition, the IPE Curriculum Committee is also responsible for the development of new IPE initiatives, review of current initiatives, and overall direction of UNMC's IPE program.
