Achieving the Optimal Interprofessional Clinical Learning Environment: Proceedings from an NCICLE Symposium
The National Collaborative for Improving the Clinical Learning Environment (NCICLE) released the complete proceedings of its 2017 national symposium on enhancing the interprofessional clinical learning environment (IP-CLE). The proceedings, developed by an NCICLE work group representing a diverse set of symposium participants, serve as a catalyst to stimulate new ideas and approaches to viewing the clinical learning environment as a shared responsibility.
The proceedings summarize conversations and activities from the 2-day symposium that focused on the following:
- The value of IP-CLEs
- Characteristics of high-functioning IP-CLEs
- The role of leaders in macro, meso, and micro environments of health care in supporting high functioning IP-CLEs
- The role of national stakeholders – today and in the future – in optimizing conversations, practices and structures that will enhance interprofessional learning in the context of patient care.

The symposium was held on October 13 and 14, 2017, at the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s (ACGME’s) offices in Chicago, IL. The symposium was sponsored by the ACGME and the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation—with advisory input from the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education—and in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the American Association for Physician Leadership, and the Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Education. The approximately 100 invited participants included content experts from numerous health professions holding various roles within health professions education and the health care system. Participants were nominated by NCICLE members, the NCICLE IP-CLE symposium work group, and the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education.
