The objective of the Health-Focused Interprofessional Education (IPE) Community of Practice is to enable interprofessional collaborative practice throughout the Paso del Norte community in order to promote health and wellness. Efforts include or will include the implementation of campus-based and community-based IPE activities focused on underserved and/or vulnerable populations; the implementation of IPE-related professional development for faculty and clinicians; and the dissemination of IPE-related scholarship. We encourage involvement from faculty, staff, and students from any discipline and educational institution, as well as community members.


We aspire to be a nationally recognized model of highly effective interprofessional education that is driven by a shared passion to serve underserved and/or vulnerable populations.
