THE INTERPROFESSIONAL EDUCATION PATHWAY
The Interprofessional Education Pathway takes students on a journey throughout the course of their pre-licensure program that will ensure they develop the competencies to be an effective collaborative practitioner. The Pathway is made up of the myriad of interprofessional learning opportunities that students can choose to participate in during their time at UBC. There are a number of interprofessional learning opportunities available to UBC students, which include activities that are part of formal program curricula; practice-based learning; elective courses; volunteer experiences; extra-curricular activities; and social events. An Interprofessional Education Passport helps students track their progress through the pathway.
Context - The Pathway includes classroom-based learning; practice-based experiences; and technology enabled learning.
Simple/Complex - The Pathway differentiates between foundational learning, which can take place early in a learner’s journey, and deeper level learning that requires confidence in one’s own profession first. The Pathway divides learning into ’exposure’ and ’immersion’ level activities.
Quality Improvement - While the Pathway builds on both extra-curricular and curricular interprofessional learning, the ultimate goal is to have interprofessional learning integrated as part of the formal curricula.
Flexible – The pathway offers a myriad of interprofessional learning activities and is designed to respond to program specific needs and to student's interests, needs, abilities, and learning styles.
