Proposal Guidelines

The director (Jane Kirschling) and co-directors (Heather Congdon and Dave Mallott) of the UMB Center for Interprofessional Education would like to invite you to prepare a brief (no more than one page) proposal indicating your interest in participating in this faculty development opportunity.

The proposal should include a brief description of the proposed IPE project that the team will design and implement as a result of participating in the institute. The team selected to represent UMB will be asked to submit a proposal for seed grant funding from the center for up to $15,000 to support the IPE initiative in coming years.

Makeup of Teams

The team members identified in the proposal must represent at least three health profession disciplines. One member of the team can be from another University System of Maryland university if they are representing a discipline other than those offered at UMB. The team should range in size from three to five members.


All costs associated with attendance will be covered by the UMB Center for Interprofessional Education, and typically one team for the spring and one team for the fall institute will be selected to participate from UMB.


The overall goal of the IPEC effort is to create faculty champions who can enhance interprofessional curricula, learning experiences, and assessment of learners. Faculty across the health disciplines will join together to explore how to embed such content into their curriculum. Upon returning to their home institutions, it is expected that workshop participants will help to develop faculty teams with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement an interprofessional education project. A final report will be due within 18 months of the conference.
