MPH Student Invitation to Interprofessional Education Session


Hello current MPH students,

Master of Public Health (MPH) graduates work in a variety of clinical and non-clinical teams with individuals outside the professional disciplines of public health. Recognizing the importance of interprofessional practice, the Council on Education for of Public Health incorporated the ability to perform in an interprofessional team as an MPH competency.  We are seeking to understand if and how current MPH coursework or experiences are helping University of Washington MPH students build the skills and knowledge necessary to perform effectively on an interprofessional team, and how an Interprofessional Active Learning Series (iPALs) session can complement coursework and experience in developing this competency.

We are recruiting a purposive sample of in-residence MPH students to participate in focus groups about interprofessional education. We will host two focus group sessions in the Health Sciences Building:

12:00-1:20pm on Tuesday, January 23, 2018
12:00-1:20pm on Friday, January 26, 2017

A light lunch will be provided.

If you are interested and available to participate, please fill out this short questionnaire by 5pm on 1/17. If you are selected to participate, de-identified information that you provide in this questionnaire may be included as part of our reported results.

We will select a purposive sample of participants on a rolling basis, and close the survey when the focus groups have reached capacity. We will confirm eligibility and assign focus group sessions to all eligible respondents by January 18th.
