Team Composition Requirements
Schools will attend as teams with a minimum of three people and a maximum of
five people. Each team will consist of a team organizer and two to four
additional team members. At least three health professions must be represented
on each team, and at least one team member must be a member of an IPEC health
education professions organization (see below). Only one team is allowed per
institution. If your institution is affiliated with a health care service
facility, such as a Veterans Affairs center, a local community health center or
an affiliated medical center, please consider adding a representative from that
facility to your team. You may also consider adding someone responsible for
curricular planning or someone with expertise in interprofessional relationship
development. The designated team organizer from our records will become the
primary contact with IPEC and should ensure the team meets all requirements.
