Interprofessional Education Committees & Working Groups

The Interprofessional Education Curriculum at the University of Toronto partners with many individuals to develop and deliver quality learning experiences to students.

 

The InterFaculty Curriculum Committee

The InterFaculty Curriculum Committee (IFCC) has been delegated, on behalf of the Council of Health Sciences (CHS) and respective faculties and departments, with the responsibility of overseeing and endorsing the development, implementation, and evaluation of the IPE Curriculum for the U of T. The IFCC is a unique body that encourages collaborative leadership across all professions and provides a forum for dialogue, consultation, and decision-making regarding interprofessional curricular issues.

IPE/IPC Leaders Network

The IPE/IPC Leaders Network is comprised of IPE/IPC Leaders from across the Greater Toronto Area. These individuals lead practice based IPE experiences in their respective practice settings and are active in shaping student learning in the IPE Curriculum. Because their work brings together interprofessional education theory and practice, their experiences and observations have been of particular value to the development and implementation of the IPE Component in a Practice Setting and IPE elective learning activities. This group meets formally several times each year and works closely with the Academic Coordinators of Clinical Education (ACCEs, see below) to build capacity for IPE in practice settings.

Academic Coordinators of Clinical Education (ACCE)

The Academic Coordinators of Clinical Education are a group of faculty members from the University of Toronto responsible for the clinical education of students from their health science programs. Their focus is the development, coordination and oversight of clinical or fieldwork placements or rotations for their students. The ACCE meets semi–annually with IPE/IPC Clinical Leads in practice settings to enable and enhance the critically important IPE curriculum component.
