IPECP Synergy Award


As part of Emory’s efforts to advance IPECP, a strategic priority of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC)’s Strategic Plan, a WHSC Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (IPECP) Council was established in 2018 to further the goal of transforming healthcare through interprofessional learning and care. The Council focuses on elevating IPECP as a central educational theme across WHSC in the core areas of faculty development, student curriculum, research, simulation, and clinical practice.

The WHSC IPECP Council is soliciting proposals to expand the development of innovations in IPECP that enhance the WHSC Strategic Plan and foster relationships across WHSC schools and programs. Proposals can build on work from the IPECP Curricula Summits held in April, be expansions of existing initiatives, or can be new ideas. Areas of focus for innovation in IPECP could include (but are not limited to):

  • Curricula and/or student experience
  • Models of care and/or clinical practice
  • Simulation
  • Community-based care and/or projects


Please download the Request for Proposals (PDF) for more information on eligibility and how to apply. Proposals will be due by no later than 5:00pm on Monday, August 5, 2019.
