Practice Activity Preceptor-Supervisor Agreement

Interprofessional Education Competence Phase Practice Activity

Preceptor/Supervisor Agreement

Dear Site Preceptor/Supervisor,

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) encourages and requires experiential (observational and hands-on) learning as a part of every student’s Interprofessional Education (IPE).  Practice-based opportunities for advanced students provide direct practical work experience paired with intentional learning strategies to foster interaction among two or more professions for academic, personal, and career-oriented growth and reflection. Toward these goals, we encourage and challenge each student participating in the Competence phase of the IPE curriculum to work with you and your team to fulfill a positive and meaningful interprofessional learning experience.

Expectations for this practice experience include:

  • Introduction to the members of the interprofessional team
  • Orientation to the Triple Aim goal(s) addressed by the team’s work
    • Improve patient care/patient experience
    • Improve population health
    • Decrease cost of care
  • Discussion of the roles/responsibilities of team members in meeting Triple Aim goals

Upon completion of the experience, an IPE Practice Activity Verification Form should be signed by the preceptor to document the student’s participation.  The student will submit this form as well as a reflective essay in Blackboard detailing their experience in the practice/work activity.  Questions addressed in the essay are included in the Triple Aim IPE Competence Phase – Practice Activity Reflection Assignment.  If you are willing to participate as a practice site for students, please submit online using the web form below. For any questions, please contact Dr. Kat Neill at kkneill@uams.edu.
