Presenting at the Nexus Summit:
Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) have developed innovative interprofessional clinical education environments called Interprofessional Dedicated Education Units (IPDEUs). Health professional students rotate through hospital-based IPDEUs guided by Interprofessional Practice Instructors (IPIs) with the specific intent of learning the principles of interprofessional practice through active observation, modeling and robust facilitation and debriefing.

Moving IPE from isolated learning events to scaled integrated curricular models crossing education and practice is critical to learner success and driving change in practice. Leaders from MGH Institute of Health Professions offer a structured forum to assist participants in realizing opportunities and transitioning current IPE/IPP efforts into integrated programs.
