Interprofessional Education - IPE

Programs of Study

Didactic steps

The Lebanese American University Interprofessional Education (LAU IPE) Steps consist of a series of five half-day mandatory, extracurricular and longitudinal workshops offered throughout the curriculum of health and social care students (i.e. pharmacy, medicine, nursing, nutrition and social work). The series is equivalent to 15 contact hours, and delivered over two or three years, depending on the profession. Students from different professions are grouped together by program level (entry, intermediate or advanced) based on their amount of clinical experience and familiarity with interdisciplinary practice. Entry level includes students who have not yet had any clinical learning experience regardless of their class year. Intermediate level includes students who are enrolled in their initial clinical experiences. Advanced level Steps include students who are nearing completion of their training, having had multiple clinical experiences and gained broader knowledge of healthcare.
