IPE at UCSF is led by the following groups:

School Leads for Interprofessional Education

Amber Fitzsimmons, DPTSc, PT

Susan Hydge, DDS, MPH, PhD



IPE Committees

The Curriculum Development Working Group (CDWG) is comprised of faculty from the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Dentistry and Physical Therapy. The CDWG is charged with identifying current interprofessional opportunities across the professional schools and future IPE curriculum delivery opportunities. 


The overarching purpose of the IPE Assessment Committee is to develop and implement a robust system of learner assessment for interprofessional education at UCSF, including frameworks, metrics, and tools that ensure the mission, goals, and educational outcomes of PIPE programming are met.


The Program for Interprofessional Education has an Interprofessional Practice and Education Scholarship Working Group to promote scholarship in interprofessional practice (IPP) and interprofessional education (IPE) at UCSF. This group provides an opportunity for consultations for IPE/IPP works in progress. (membership in development)
