Expansion of the IPE Clinical Practicum

The expansion of the IPE curriculum over the past three to include an optional Academic Minor in Interprofessional Practice for undergraduate health professions students has enabled us to add two applied experimental courses. One course is the Interprofessional Clinical Practicum (IPE 4905) and the other is Interprofessional Health Outcomes Research (ORES 2320) in collaboration with SLUCOR.

The IP Clinical Practicum has expanded significantly with over 45 students in AY2015-16. The CIER has expanded partnerships at Cardinal Glennon, SLU Hospital, SLUCare, and in the community to provide students opportunities to experience the various settings and methods of practicing interprofessional collaborative team-based care.  We would like to acknowledge and express our appreciation to all the following sites engaged in the 4905 course.

Current SLU/SSM Partner Sites Include:

  • Cardinal Glennon Cleft Palate Clinic
  • Life Care Senior Center (SLU Geriatrics)
  • SLU Deep Brain Stimulation and Movement Disorders Clinic (Neurology and Nero-Surgery)
  • SLU ALS Clinic
