Extended Abstract

Presentation focuses on the design, deployment, and evaluation of a novel virtual interprofessional education approach entitled VIPE.  VIPE was created to provide students in-training for roles in the health and healthcare delivery space with case based, short term, virtual collaboration experiences with students associated with other professions they will likely collaborate with in professional settings. Essential design features and theory that guided the creation of VIPE will be discussed. Student outcomes data (N=374) for a two-year period will be shared in the context of the Interprofessional Education Competency model (IPEC, 2016).
