In the spring of 2016, the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions, Pharmacy, and Biomedical Sciences, along with the Office of Interprofessional Education and the Sex- and Gender-Specific Health program at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Lubbock campus, conducted a pilot program called IPE Day. The goal of IPE Day was to gather students from various Schools and put them together in Interprofessional teams to diagnose and treat a female stroke patient within a problem based learning context and with a sex and gender difference emphasis.
The 2016 IPE Day pilot program was a rousing success and is scheduled to become an annual event at TTUHSC! This page is designed as a resource for other institutions that might want to replicate a program like this. Please visit this section of the Cases page on the SGSH website for all the details on the 2016 IPE Day and for more information about how you might have a similar event at your institution.
