The UNE College of Pharmacy is committed to advancing a collaborative care model that embraces the role of all health care professionals in the care of patients. UNE is a national leader in interprofessional education and students at the College of Pharmacy have an opportunity to work with other health professions including medicine, dental, physicians assistants, dental hygiene, social work, nursing, and physical and occupational therapy.

The Interprofessional Education (IPE) curricular plan for the University of New England College of Pharmacy is organized around the four recommended characteristics set forth by the 2019 HPAC Guidance on Developing Quality Interprofessional Education for the Health Professions document (Health Professions Accreditors Collaborative 2019). The IPE curricular plan serves to identify the rationale, outcome-based goals, design, and assessment and evaluation methods that will ensure high quality, fully integrated, and purposeful IPE learning in the College of Pharmacy’s didactic curricula. The curricular plan is designed to prepare learners to enter their experiential curricular experiences with interprofessional knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to engage in interprofessional collaborative practice. The experiential curriculum provides an environment for students to demonstrate interprofessional teamwork and practice

Didactic Learning Opportunities

Our curriculum has unique interprofessional activities embedded throughout the didactic curriculum including:

  • SBIRT (P1)
  • IGEP (P3)
  • Simulation (P1-P3)
  • IPE Experience Course (P3)

Our students engage in interprofessional practice throughout their Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) during their fourth year. We have a number of collaborative IPE Practice sites led by College of Pharmacy faculty. Additionally, participants in the Care for the Underserved Pathway Scholars program are placed in communities that allow them to engage in IPE experiences across their fourth year.
