IPE is an approach to teaching and learning that brings together students from two or more professions to learn about, from and with each other in service of enabling effective collaboration. Its goal is to improve health care outcomes through the education of a collaborative practice ready workforce that is prepared to respond to local and global health needs (World Health Organization 2010).

Welcome to the portal of Interprofessional Education (IPE) at Beirut Arab University. Here, you will find information regarding our approach to IPE and how to get involved in opportunities geared toward BAU students, academic and clinical staff members.
