The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) is committed to creating a Triple Aim culture which incorporates IPE competencies to improve patient care, improve population health, and reduce cost of care. Creating opportunities for IPE can be challenging for multi-college campuses because of variation in schedules, faculty development needs, and accreditation standards. Triple Aim goals are applicable to all academic units and service lines at UAMS and serve as a unifying framework to build IPE activities.
A 12 member IPE Steering Committee composed of representatives from all six colleges at UAMS worked interprofessionally to design a longitudinal curriculum that incorporates IPE through a series of learning and practice activities grounded in Triple Aim tracks. The proposed curriculum was presented to the curriculum committee/faculty assembly for each college and approved as a campus-wide graduation requirement.
