Interdisciplinary Health Education Partnership

The Interdisciplinary Health Education Partnership (IHEP) project’s purpose is to develop and assess standardized interdisciplinary learning modules using simulation platforms. In short, IHEP is a great way for students to develop interdisciplinary communication skills through a series of interdisciplinary health team simulations using standardized patients, high fidelity mannequins, and virtual world technology. IHEP developed, and delivers, Save Stan every year. In 2017 this unique event took place at both the University of Alberta and McEwan campuses. Over 1000 students took part.
