The Institute for Excellence in Health Professions Education (ieHPE) is a transdisciplinary academic department focused on the health sciences related to learning across multiple levels of scale (i.e., individual, group, organization, nation, region). ieHPE works to improve health in systemic ways by advancing the sciences that make learning effective, routine, and efficient. Our research programs generate new knowledge that enhances learning at all levels; our educational programs train new practitioners and researchers in the sciences of learning; our service programs enhance health professions curricula and guide health systems as they evolve to become learning health systems.
