Interprofessional Education Exams (IPE)

Best practices in U.S. healthcare models encourage interprofessional collaboration, co-operation, and communication.

According to the 2010 definition of the World Health Organization, “Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.”

CNUCOP has created a comprehensive, integrated IPE curriculum that includes the CNU College of Medicine, College of Health Sciences, College of Psychology and our partner institutions, Sacramento State University School of Nursing and the Samuel Merritt University School of Nursing. CNUCOP students participate in at least one IPE event each year of their didactic program. For more specific information regarding CNUCOP IPE, please consult the General Catalog.

By partnering with PioneerRx Pharmacy Software, our program allows students to learn in a real-world environment using the most installed software for independent pharmacies. Students enhance their clinical and functional skills by training in a pharmacy system that is innovative, robust, and feature-rich.
