Interprofessional Education at Binghamton University
Interprofessional education (IPE) occurs when two or more professions learn with, about and from each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.
IPE supports the University's strategic plan
President Harvey Stenger created the University's Road Map, a plan for Binghamton's future. The plan includes several strategic priorities, among them:
- Strategic priority #1: Creative Activities — Enhancing the University's economic, social and cultural impact through engagement from the local to the global level.
- Strategic priority #2: Learning Community — Providing a transformative learning community that prepares students for advanced education, careers and purposeful living.
- Strategic priority #4: Engagement — Engaging in path-breaking graduate education, research, scholarship and creative activities that shape the world.
Binghamton's IPE program supports these strategic initiatives through a curriculum focused on ensuring our graduates are prepared to support an improved system of health and wellness for individuals, communities and populations.
Mission and Vision
To prepare professionals to thrive as members of collaborative teams that provide quality services to diverse populations, promoting accessible, person-centered care to promote well-being and improve health outcomes.
Binghamton University will be a leader in interprofessional education to advance the well-being of our community and improve population health outcomes, through engaged learning, collaborative practice community partnerships and research.
