About Interprofessional Education
The Johns Hopkins Interprofessional Collaborative beginning's started in 2011 when the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing and School of Medicine began actively integrating interprofessional learning into the pre-licensure curriculum. Each passing year has seen significant growth in the arena of interprofessional education programs for students and trainees. From the initial small beginnings, the program has grown significantly and now spans both pre and post licensure programs, including students from the School of Pharmacy at Notre Dame of Maryland University and the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Currently we are working to expand interprofessional collaborative practice opportunities for practicing clinicians.
Here are some of the current interprofessional initiatives at the Johns Hopkins University:
- Core Interprofessional Education events for pre-licensure students
- Interprofessional Education Student interest group
- The Daniel's Program in Interprofessional Education
- The Aliki Initiative
- Hopkins Bayview Interprofessional Program Directors Clinical Community
- Interprofessional Education – Online Simulation and Debriefing
- Interprofessional Clinical Learning Teams in Primary Care, sponsored by the Josiah Macy Jr Foundation
- Global Health Leadership Program
- HRSA funded Interprofessional Shared Clinical Experiences program for nurse practitioner, pharmacy students and chaplain interns
- Student Outreach Resource Center (SOURCE)
- Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality
The Interprofessional Collaborative continues to actively promote activities that will encourage healthcare professionals to develop the skills that will enable them to work together effectively in order to provide the best and safest health care.
