What is IPMC?
The IPMC focuses on promoting interprofessional collaboration among our professional students at the University of Maryland, allowing them to apply their patient care knowledge and skills to an interprofessional patient case. The patient case is developed through a collaboration of faculty judges from each professional school on campus. Teams consisting of one student from each school will be given two hours to collectively determine and work up the most critical issues in the case. There will be an unlimited number of teams who can participate. The top three teams will be asked to return for the second date to be judged by the faculty panel during oral presentations. These students will have 10 minutes to present their case and answer any questions posed by the faculty judges.
All dental, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, and social work students are encouraged to participate.
