Abstract
Interprofessional education (IPE) is considered best practice, but large group implementation is challenging; most efforts have been limited to a classroom or specific program. Inclusion of IPE among all disciplines is highly recommended during pre-professional training as opposed to workplace training. This project describes the efforts at Clarkson College to implement IPE using an online course for all in-coming students in Fall 2018. Experiences researching, planning, implementing and evaluating this IPE program are shared.
