A goal for IPE curriculum is to deliberately design and sequence a series of introductory, classroom, extracurricular and experiential/clinical learning activities integrated in existing individual professional curriculum.  This design, spanning the length of professional programs, creates opportunities for learning formats appropriate to the level of learners, competency mastery, and outcomes.  Presenters in the Longitudinal IPE Curriculum track span four areas:  early and introductory courses and activities, turning events to beginning planning across the curriculum, experiential education, and IPE tracking systems.
