In Canada and abroad, government and health care sectors have placed importance on developing a curriculum to change the way health professionals are educated and trained. This program will enhance your natural leadership abilities to teach excellence in Interprofessional Education (IPE), helping to build an IPE community of leaders in healthcare.
Coordinated by the Centre for Interprofessional Education and a team of health professionals across the health sciences faculties at the University of Toronto, this certificate program is designed for health professionals interested in interprofessional education and interprofessional practice.
Participants are selected through a call for application process whereby they must submit a 250 word abstract of an interprofessional project/activity that they hope to undertake. Please see the Application tab for additional information.
