Editor's Note: This publication predates our implementation of the Educational Summary Report in 2016 and thus displays a different format than newer publications.


The purpose of this article is to describe the facilitators, planning, execution and lessons learned from this inaugural event. A detailed account of the work plan and campus and administrative infrastructural facilitators is provided. Event programs and flyers are attached to offer templates for others to study and/or modify for their own usage.

Health professions' academic institutions are encouraged to embrace IPE. This submission describes a health sciences campus' first IPE Day and delineates its planning and implementation phases and shares the lessons learned. Forces that facilitated the development and execution of IPE Day are discussed and supportive program materials are provided to share with the readership. It is hoped that this example of a health sciences university's campus wide IPE Day will serve as a resource to others and will encourage and motivate them to attempt similar IPE events on their respective campuses.

Educational Objectives

  1. To share a template of a successful Interprofessional Education Day (IPE) held on a large health sciences campus.
