Building Interprofessional Education (IPE) through the humanities
Award: Phoenix Project Fellowship (2015)
Co-Sponsor: University of Ottawa
- Medical education and curricula
Pippa used her fellowship to strengthen the undergraduate medical program at the University of Ottawa. She facilitated IPE activities using the arts and humanities. Her work included creating a forum for medical faculty, faculty from other departments, students, and community members to learn about each other in a non-hierarchical structure. She built a network of leaders, students, and residents interested in interprofessional education, and offered mentorship to help them develop in this area.
Pippa also used her fellowship to contribute to the evaluation of the University of Ottawa’s Medicine and Humanities curriculum.
