At UAMS, we take on the toughest questions and the biggest challenges facing Arkansas, the nation, and the world.
The Office of Interprofessional Education (OIPE) tackles these challenges in several ways:

  1. Educating tomorrow’s health care leaders through a Triple Aim IPE curriculum framework.
  2. Developing evidence-based programs dedicated to faculty development.
  3. Pursuing research and scholarship that will lead to better methods of prevention, diagnosis, and treatments.
  4. Promoting the core competencies of the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) across healthcare and team science professions.

The Development Pillar is chaired by Lisa Black.
