Interprofessional education (IPE) is becoming a requirement of academic programs to include for accreditation standards. Various professions have their own areas of expertise, yet “team approaches” to accomplish tasks have been a staple of the public and private sector. There is prudence to integrate interactions and familiarity between students rather than exclusively focusing on individual student needs. Faculty may not know how to begin weaving IPE into individual courses and may struggle with the “how-to” and/or “where do I start?” Discussion of results from EKU IPE pilot projects will be provided along with practical suggestions for IPE integration.
