The Center for Interprofessional Education at UMB is pleased to announce three funding opportunities for projects focused on Team-Based Care.

  • Proposals should be practice- or classroom-focused, with educational and evaluative components employing the IPEC Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice.

Interprofessional team-based care (IPC): Care delivered by intentionally created, usually relatively small, work groups in health care, who are recognized by others as well as by themselves as having a collective identity and shared responsibility for a patient or group of patients.
