UW–Madison has a strong history of providing exemplary continuing education for healthcare professionals. In January 2015, the School of Medicine and Public Health Office of Continuing Professional Development, School of Nursing Continuing Education in Nursing Program, and the School of Pharmacy Division of Pharmacy Professional Development began a partnership intending to expand professional development opportunities that focus on interprofessional collaboration and teamwork.

The resulting interprofessional continuing education partnership (ICEP) was awarded Joint Accreditation in 2016, which is a new distinction from the three global leaders in healthcare continuing education accreditation.

We are excited to be leaders in the development of team-based interprofessional continuing education, living the Wisconsin Idea.

The ICEP Mission

To provide exemplary and innovative accredited interprofessional continuing education that improves healthcare team performance leading to healthy patients and communities.
