Interprofessional Certificates of Distinction
**Please note that Certificates of Distinction are on hold until further notice. We will not be accepting applications for 2016-2017.
The Centre for Interprofessional Education launched the Certificate of Distinction Program in 2013 due to expressed interest in longitudinal interprofessional relationships and learning experiences by students and faculty. As well, they have identified the value of engaging in enhanced opportunities with specific themes. Students wishing more intensive collaborative learning opportunities may apply to complete one of the following Interprofessional Certificates of Distinction:
Interprofessional Management of Chronic Health Challenges

Interprofessional Health, Arts & Humanities

Interprofessional Quality and Safety
Each certificate program will provide students with deeper learning and experiences that will support enhanced patient/client care and leadership skills.
In order to receive a Certificate of Distinction, students must complete an introductory module or activity, a specified number of elective learning activities (recognized by the Centre for Interprofessional Education), a leadership/professionalism module or activity, and a team project. Each of the learning opportunities leading to certification will be available to all students in any of the 11 health science professions. These learning activities will be recognized as meeting the requirements of both the IPE Curriculum/Program and Certificate of Distinction Program.
Each of these Certificate Programs will be reviewed annually. The process will involve the collection of stakeholder feedback (students, working group, InterFaculty Curriculum Committee, facilitators, etc). For an elective learning activity to be recognized within the Interprofessional Education Curriculum, a formal application must be submitted to the Centre for Interprofessional Education, University of Toronto. Please see Elective Approval Process (PIPEs) for more information.
