Interprofessional Education

Interprofessional education (IPE) promotes teamwork and improves collaborative skills for positive health care outcomes. Clarkson College students optimize their roles within an interdisciplinary team by completing IPE 301, a five-module course designed to provide an overview of health care professionals’ roles and responsibilities. The first four online modules (completed in the first semester) focus on teaching effective communication, collaboration and leadership skills that promote teamwork within an interdisciplinary health care team setting. The fifth module (completed prior to graduation) requires students to put their interprofessional skills into practice by participating in three IPE activities before graduation. IPE 301 allows students to practice providing ethical, client-centered care while understanding the importance of personal accountability and professionalism.

IPE Requirements

  • All incoming degree-seeking students enrolled in on-campus and online programs must complete the course before graduation.
  • IPE 301 is a zero-credit, pass/fail, five-module course is recorded on every student’s transcript.
  • The course appears on all academic plans distributed by the Registrar’s office and posted within Self-Service.
  • Students must register for IPE 301 in their first semester and are responsible for the $90 course fee.
  • Students complete the first 4 modules during their first semester
  • Students have until graduation to complete their 3 IPE experiences as part of module 5

Approved IPE Events for Academic Year 2020-2021

*Students must attend at least 3 different interprofessional activities/experiences, 1 from each category, before graduating from Clarkson College. Following each event, students will complete the IPE Reflection through their IPE 301 online course shell (Module 5).

A list of approved IPE events are listed below. If you would like to submit a different activity for IPE approval, please complete the My IPE Activity Proposal Rubric. Proposals will be reviewed at the end of every month, so be sure to plan ahead and submit with enough time for the committee to review it and get back to you (we suggest 4-5 weeks in advance). Once activities receive IPE approval, they will be added to this list within one week. All IPE experiences must be pre-approved, or they will not count toward your My IPE requirements. All IPE reflections must be submitted within 3 months of event completion, so as to remain timely and maintain high quality reflection.
