Adoption of interprofessional education across a university campus requires significant culture change at many levels. Without sustained commitment from senior leadership and key faculty champions, culture change is unlikely and IPE programs may not be sustained. Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) is a health sciences university affiliated with a major academic health center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. TJU made a major commitment to interprofessional education in 2007, when the Jefferson InterProfessional Education Center (JCIPE) was established. Using the Culture Change Model of Kezar and Eckel as a framework, and TJU and JCIPE as an exemplar case study, the presenters will describe key learning, faculty, and organizational focused factors that have contributed to sustained IPE success. They will also address how faculty and students have developed curriculum and IPE evaluation strategies designed to support five core strategies to support successful change in academic institutions. Presented by Dr. Christine Arenson, Dr. Kevin Lyons and Dr. Elizabeth Speakman.

Drs. Earnest and Brandt are co-leading an initiative to explore and define elements of a new “Nexus” of practice and higher education aligned with health systems transformation. This initiative is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as well as support for a Josiah Macy Jr.-funded commissioned paper. Through facilitated dialogue, academic and practice partners are defining their shared vision and goals to create a true collaboration between education and practice. The work is important to and closely aligned with a primary focus of the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education.

Dr. Amy Blue discusses an institutional example of interprofessional education (IPE) implementation at one institution, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), Charleston, South Carolina. The framework of building organizational capacity is used to illustrate the conditions needed for establishment of institutional initiatives, such as IPE. Key elements for building organizational capacity, including governance, structure and infrastructure, policies and processes, communication and information sharing, and strategies for culture change are highlighted in this case study, with the purpose to inform other institutions embarking on development of IPE about possible approaches for their own efforts.
