Welcome to the Spring 2014 edition of the Jefferson Center for Interprofessional Education (JCIPE) newsletter. In this edition of our newsletter, you will have a chance to read about two new innovations in technology designed to enhance interprofessional education and collaborative practice. We believe that integrating technology into IPE will be central to aligning health care education reforms with changes in healthcare delivery. This Spring also marks the graduation of our 6th cohort of JHMP students at TJU. Now, over 4,100 students have completed this longitudinal IPE curriculum; feedback from graduates has been highly positive, detailing the impact of IPE experiences in better preparing them for teamwork as well as providing them with an unexpected advantage in employment opportunities, where competency as an effective team player is highly valued by employers.
