Who am I?

Role Clarification in Interprofessional Teams

Within each course in the IPE curriculum, students from each health profession bring forth their own unique roles and responsibilities into the activity. Roles are clarified in relation to the other health professions students and opportunities for role overlap are discussed. When practiced collaboratively, students meet the targeted course learning objectives.
