Interprofessional Education (IPE)

Interprofessional Education





Interprofessional education (IPE) plays an important role in completing a student's healthcare learning journey. ASTEC is proud to provide a variety of IPE simulations, all of which are available any UArizona Health Sciences student.  ASTEC's IPE activities fulfill initiative 1.3 of the Wildcat Journey, one of the five pillars of the University of Arizona Strategic Plan

To learn more about ASTEC's many IPE simulation resources and activities, explore the tiles below.
