ASPIRE seeks to develop core interprofessional values and competencies in students and clinicians from across the learning continuum.
National interprofessional competencies for IPE include communication practices, professional roles and responsibilities, values and ethics, and teamwork and team based practices. Adapting these guidelines to our competency mapping, ASPIRE focuses on communication, professionalism, shared problem-solving, shared decision-making, and conflict resolution. Students gain competencies as they move through the learning continuum and are tested prior to graduation through Interprofessional Teamwork Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (ITSOCEs).
ASPIRE is committed to traning the next generation of healthcare providers in a learning environment that fosters collaboration in providing patient-centered care that is respectful, compassionate and culturally sensitive.
