Call for Posters

The IPEC Poster Fair provides an opportunity to share interprofessional education for collaborative (IPECP) projects and practices implemented by health professions schools and programs and their colleagues. IPEC welcomes posters sharing interprofessional projects and practices across all disciplines, and at various stages of development and implementation.

A free online event, the showcase is a venue to show your IPECP experiences in exploring, designing, and/or implementing interprofessional activities.
