Interprofessional Education (IPE)

Interprofessional Education (IPE) involves learning about, from and with each other, and sharing our different perspectives while learning together in areas of common interest in the practice of health care.

On this page, we will keep you informed of our IPE plans, as well as the latest news from the Canadian and world-wide IPE movements and useful IPE-related information and links.

If you have been involved, as an organizer or participant, in a successful IPE experience at George Brown, please let us know. We would like to use this space to celebrate our successes. In fact, George Brown has launched a collaborative Practice Health Care Award to allow our community to share and honour best practices.

What we are up to…
