Transforming Healthcare through Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice

Interprofessional Education at UAMS

The UAMS Office of Interprofessional Education (IPE) is located within the Division of Academic Affairs and is led by Dr. Lee Wilbur. IPE contributes to the curriculum development, scholarship productivity, research infrastructure, and collaborative practice environment across all five colleges and the graduate school.  We are uniquely positioned to make a tremendous impact in meeting that triple aim locally, regionally, and nationally. UAMS leadership supports and asserts IPE as a means to improve the health of those we serve in the State of Arkansas. The IPE strategic goals support the vision of the Triple Aim; The Institute for Healthcare Improvement articulated that the key to health care reform is to strive for the Triple Aim.

Our team is dedicated to help:

  • improve the care of the individual
  • improve the health of the population
  • decrease the cost of care
