action plan to:
Identify resources and commitments necessary to facilitate IPE at one’s institution
Plan and design an IPE curriculum
Create learner assessment strategies in IPE
Develop faculty skills in IPE
Communicate the team’s IPE objectives to decision makers

necessary to implement an interprofessional education plan.
