Promoting Interprofessional Education for Students - PIPES
The MIPERC organization PIPES (Promoting Interprofessional Education for Students) was founded in 2009 and strives to promote interprofessional education (IPE) to students pursuing health-related fields. At each PIPES event, students are provided with opportunities to learn interprofessionally via panel presentations, simulations, collaborative discussions, lectures, and hands-on learning activities. In addition, one or more of the Interprofessional Education Collaboration (IPEC) Core Competencies will be addressed at each event:
- Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice
- Interprofessional Communication
- Teams & Teamwork
All students in higher education are welcome to attend our monthly PIPES events! Students enrolled in the MIPERC IPE Student Certificate program will receive PIPES credit for attending events. Students pursuing the MIPERC IPE Certificate are required to participate in at least 3 PIPES events & participate in 1 interprofessional simulation.
Check out PIPES today! Events are typically held monthly on GVSU's Health Campus at 5 pm on weeknights during the fall and winter semesters. Live Streaming options are available for students who are not able to attend events in person.
