Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)


Interprofessional simulation has been a mainstay of a Jefferson education for almost a decade. Since the opening of the Hamilton Building in 2007, opportunities for interprofessional simulation have grown exponentially at the University. In response to this rapid growth, an Interprofessional Simulation Curriculum Committee (ISCC) was established by Dr. Michael Vergare, Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs in 2010. Committee members include representatives from nursing, medicine, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and pharmacy. The overarching goal of the ISCC is to promote and support the development of interprofessional education via simulation as a teaching/ learning strategy for faculty and students on campus. To achieve this goal, the committee offers both individual consultation, as well as faculty development programs.
