Faculty of Health Sciences Interprofessional Education

How does IPE work?

All Faculty of Health Sciences students complete five core units in their first year:

  • Foundations for Professional Health Practice
  • Health and Health Behaviour
  • Human Structure and Function
  • Evidence Informed Health Practice
  • Indigenous Culture and Health.

You also complete two units in the areas of bioscience, science or behavioural science (specified by your course) and two discipline specific units (one in each semester). These are important to connect you with your chosen discipline in your first year of study.

Providing flexibility to first year students

It’s okay to change your mind in your first year, because IPE’s curriculum allows you flexibility to move to another health sciences degree if the course you initially chose to study isn’t what you expected.
