Three disciplines (Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant) in the College of Health and Human Services at WMU have collaborated to provide interprofessional education experiences for entry level prelicensure students. First year students from the three disciplines were assigned to one of 16 small interprofessional teams for the academic year 2019-20. During this year, the students were expected to meet with their Health Mentors in their groups three times. The fall meeting was a luncheon with all the mentors and their small IPE teams. The spring meeting occurred at a place of the mentors’ choice. Preliminary assessment data from the first meeting is included here.


Dr. Yvonne Jackson, from Physical Therapy, and Dr. Debra Lindstrom, from Occupational Therapy, created this poster to share information about their assessment project. They were the recipients of one of the 2019-20 WMU Assessment Fellows Grants to conduct research on assessment of student learning outcomes.
