Applying Modern Technology to Interprofessional Training

Why use a virtual world for IPE?

  • Allows for a safe environment for experiential learning.
  • Provides an immersive, engaging learning environment that facilitates active application of core knowledge and skills
  • Enables community building among remote participants; does not require students to be in same physical location
