The IPEC Center with its people, programs, and pathways is engaging in interprofessional collaborative practice. This IPEC is designed to provide inspiration and opportunities for the learners and teachers in all of us. While the “real work” of IPEC occurs in classrooms, clinics, and communities, IPEC is intended to build bridges for you across professions and disciplines to improve health and healthcare for the people we serve.
To that end, IPEC is committed to the transformation of the culture of care to one that is collaborative and team-based. Health professions education at Duke will prepare learners to become practice-ready partners providing high quality, team-based care in order to optimize health outcomes for individuals, families, and populations. Graduates will be change agents for team-based healthcare in the United States and around the globe.
