The main campus of the UF College of Pharmacy (COP) is located at the UF Academic Health Center (AHC) in Gainesville, with
three distance campuses in Jacksonville, St. Petersburg, and Orlando. Until 2012, Interprofessional (IPE) activities included
IPE communication and team rounds during Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) for all students and an IPE
experience for students on the Gainesville campus. Since 2001, the UF COP students on the Gainesville campus have participated
in a first-year IPE experience conducted cooperatively with other health professions programs. During this experience, teams
of interprofessional students visit patient families in the community and complete activities that promote health and wellness
throughout the year.
It was determined that IPE activities were needed at each of the distance campuses and each was tasked with the development
of these activities. It was realized that the partners and curricular design at each distant campus would be different because of the
unique educational and partnership opportunities at each campus.
The Jacksonville campus, located at the Shands Jacksonville Health Science Center, created new IPE opportunities for both
their first and second year students. During students? first professional pharmacy year, students are grouped with nursing students
from a nearby university and participate in health screenings in the community. Similar to the Gainesville students, they also
visit with patient families and discuss their interventions with nursing faculty, pharmacists, and medical students. In the second
professional year, students review cases during three half-day team-based learning sessions led by interprofessional faculty.
