Committee Charge

The Norris Medical Library’s Interprofessional Education Committee is dedicated to creating an environment across the health professions that connects disciplines, promotes teamwork, fosters mutual understanding, strengthens research, and advances Inter-Professional Education (IPE) [1] opportunities for health sciences students.

The Norris Medical Library will facilitate communication between committee members, support their information needs surrounding IPE, and maintain a centralized IPE webpage.

[1] IPE is defined as formal, planned "occasions when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care" (Barr, 2005). The definition of IPE, at USC Health Sciences, includes collaboration between two or more academic units and/or disciplines. The ultimate goals of IPE are to increase collaboration between disciplines (professions), promote health and better systems of care, and prepare students for high demand careers that require effective team work.
