Interprofessional Education

Every term, we offer a number of learning opportunities accredited by the Centre for Interprofessional Education at the University of Toronto that are open to all students at Bridgepoint.

IPE learning opportunities will be circulated to learners and clinical instructors directly by email as they arise.

Structured IPE placements

Each term Bridgepoint offers structured interprofessional placements for a limited number of students. This is an opportunity to work in a small group with students in other professions for a three week period. Each term different topics are pursued, recent subjects have included patient centred care, palliative care and working with complexity.

The placements currently on offer follow the modified structure approved by the Centre for IPE and comprise three components:

  • An introductory two hour tutorial with specialist facilitators
  • Two facilitated two hour tutorials working in an interprofessional team
  • Preparation of a shared presentation, given to supervisors and other invited guests, at the final tutorial session. Three additional hours over the whole placement are allocated to preparation.
  • Places are limited and participants must commit to all the tutorials and to collaborative preparation of the presentation. If you are interested contact the Academic Office.
