Mission Statement

Founded in 2007, the Jefferson Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (JCIPE) is one of the premier interprofessional education centers in the U.S. Our center is dedicated to improving interprofessional care (IPC) through implementing and evaluating patient-centered education throughout the Thomas Jefferson University curriculum. We offer robust trainings and educational opportunities, provide innovative teaching models and evidence-based practices to help support emerging priorities in healthcare. We invite you to navigate this site and discover the latest developments, programs and resources in interprofessional education (IPE). Bookmark this page and stay connected with us. In 2020, Jefferson was awarded a Macy Foundation board grant, to "create a required 18-month-long core Complex Care Curriculum in the care of patients with complex care needs for learners in nine health professions."
