Interprofessional Education

The New College of Health Sciences and Professions Interprofessional Education (IPE) Scholars Initiative

This initiative replaces the MedTAPP (Medicaid Technical Assistance and Policy Program) that you may have heard about in the past. Given the interest of students in our past IPE courses and the fact that so many of our professional programs require interprofessional education in their accreditation standards, we are continuing this initiative. You are being offered this opportunity because of your outstanding performance in your program to date.

At Ohio University, IPE Scholars means two different classes for students. Scholars enroll in ONE of these classes:

IHS 5518/4518 is clinical course involving work with patients off campus and IHS 5510/4510 is a classroom based course aimed at developing an understanding of how different healthcare professionals work and can work together in real life and virtual interactions.
