Geriatric Interprofessional Teaching Clinic is a clinic where students and faculty from five different disciplines participate in the collaborative care of an older adult.
Students from different schools
"I am very excited for the opportunity to be a part of this IPE project. I recently finished eight weeks in the IPE Clinic, and it changed my life. I think that this is crucial to improving the function of our health care system and also to providing our patients with the excellent world class care that they deserve."
— Amber Vieux, nursing student
"We are training all these health care professionals on our campus, and it's critical that we give them the opportunity to collaborate while they're still students. The first time a doctor, nurse and pharmacist work together should not be after graduation."
— Courtney Tenbarge, RN, MNSc, School of Nursing clinical instructor
"I think the clinic gives our pharmacy students some valuable insight into how and why physicians prescribe the medications they do."
— James Kleoppel, PharmD, clinical assistant professor at the KU School of Pharmacy and faculty adviser at the clinic.
