along with associations representing schools of nursing, medicine, pharmacy,
and public health, is a founding member of the Interprofessional Education
Collaborative (IPEC). Two ADEA representatives, Sandra C. Andrieu, Ph.D.,
and Leo E. Rouse, D.D.S., were members of the IPEC Expert Panel that developed new competencies for interprofessional education in the
health professions and action strategies to
implement them in academic health professions institutions across the country.
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC),
one of our partners in the IPEC, has announced a call for submissions for competency-based learning and
assessment resources in support of the IPEC Core Competencies Report. Funded in
part by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, this initiative is designed to create a
national clearinghouse of competency-linked learning resources for
interprofessional education and models of team-based or collaborative care.
The AAMC, with guidance from the IPEC-MedEdPORTAL Advisory Committee of which
Dr. Rouse is ADEA’s representative, will select up to 15 applicants for
resource development awards of $2,000 to accelerate content refinement in
preparation for formal submission and peer-review to MedEdPORTAL. The award
application deadline is Friday, May 25, 2012 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time with
applicants notified of funding decisions by June 18, 2012.
