Interprofessional education

As part of the OHSU Interprofessional Initiative, dental, medical, nursing, nutrition, physician assistant, and radiation therapy students are required to attend IPE sessions during their first year at OHSU. Students will be automatically enrolled at no cost in the one credit course, IPE 501 Foundations of Patient Safety and Interprofessional Practice, which is designed for early health care learners from all OHSU schools and programs to introduce them to the importance of best practices for professionalism, roles and responsibilities, teamwork, communication, ethics, and collaborative practice as a means to improve the quality and safety of patient care.
