Interprofessional Education Project
The PAETC’s Interprofessional Education Project (IPE) is housed at the Los Angeles Region AETC (LA AETC), which consists a collaboration between UCLA, USC, and Charles Drew University. IPE Project partners with 3 health sciences schools (CDU School of Nursing, USC School of Pharmacy, and UCLA School of Medicine (including the Department of Psychiatry) in Los Angeles to increase the number of healthcare practitioners who will diagnose, care for and treat PLWH within an interprofessional healthcare team using HIV didactics and community-based hands-on clinical learning experiences. Each of these schools manages its own HIV and IPE Curricula. By participating in the IPE experience, new healthcare professionals have a better understanding of interdisciplinary care team approaches in regards to HIV and related diseases.
