Over the last 3 years, The School of Health and Medical Sciences (SHMS) at Seton Hall University has embarked on implementing an Interprofessional Education (IPE) framework to educate students in 5 of its professional graduate health science programs. The goals of this framework are to (1) educate faculty, students, practitioners, and staff on the value of interprofessional education and (2) create student clinical experiential learning opportunities that foster development of core competencies necessary to become effective, collaborative members of interprofessional teams. A Structured Immersion Approach (SIA) was adopted to implement 4 core IPE experiences for all students in the health sciences program. As 1 of the 5 health science programs in SHMS, the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP) program has actively supported the schoolwide IPE initiatives by adding IPE-related content to its didactic courses, clinical experiential training opportunities, and community service activities. Schoolwide and program-specific IPE experiences are outlined with an emphasis on the sequencing of these experiences for MS-SLP students.
