Apply for funding to promote interprofessional education and collaboration

Cleveland Clinic’s Healthcare Delivery and Implementation Science Center (HDISC) and Office of Interprofessional Learning (OIPL) are pleased to announce the 2021 Interprofessional Learning (IPL) grant opportunity.

  • Defining competencies that facilitate IPL and identify strategies to foster the development of such competencies
  • Piloting innovative, theory-driven teaching approaches to maximize learning and minimize barriers to IPL implementation
  • Designing programs that enhance the IPL collaborative practices
