Event description


Register today for the 2016 IPE Fall Symposium brought to you by the Office of Interprofessional Education at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.  The IPE Fall Symposium is an excellent way to learn together and practice interprofessional education, teamwork, and collaboration among health care professionals.  

This year's symposium will focus on Interprofessional Collaboration: Changing Patient-Centered Care. The featured keynote speaker for 2016 is Dr. Zubin Damania.

The energy and passion that Dr. Damania brings will empower everyone who attends to rethink healthcare.  Dr. Damania's keynote, Health Care Remixed, will focus on interprofessional education, teamwork, and collaboration as vital components in revitalizing health care and putting patients at the center of care. 

Dr. Damania, aka ZDoggMD, is a hospitalist, off-white rapper, founder of Turntable Health, and director of healthcare development for Downtown Project Las Vegas.  During his tenure at Stanford, he received the Russell Lee Award for Clinical Teaching.  Through ZDoggMD, his music videos have gone viral, educating patients and providers alike through public service announcements, bringing attention to health care needs, and satirizing a sometimes dysfunctional healthcare system. 

Dr. Damania's morning keynote and learning activity will be followed by lunch (provided for participants who stay through the afternoon session) and an afternoon case-based learning activity for students.  

For more information on the 2016 IPE Fall Symposium, please visit our webpage at www.ttuhsc.edu/ipe/ or call the Office of Interprofessional Education at (806) 743-2028.



  • Where will the Fall Symposium be held?

The 2016 IPE Fall Symposium will have a NEW location this year for its Lubbock participants.  The symposium will be held on the Texas Tech University main campus in the Allen Theatre (located in the Student Union Building) and the afternoon case study will be held in classrooms reserved within the Student Union itself.  

Sign-in the morning of the symosium will take place in the theatre lobby off the Akron Street entrance.  A complimentary continental breakfast will also be available in this area. 

The IPE Fall Symposium will continue to TechLink the morning session to all TTUHSC campuses in other locations as it has been in prior years. Each campus will host their own case study activity following lunch during the afternoon session. Room locations at each outlying campus will be updated closer to the event.

  • How can I get to the Allen Theatre? 

TTUHSC has contracted with CitiBus (which also serves the main campus) for transportation to and from TTUHSC to the Allen Theatre.  Bus services will run through the hour at 8 am, 12 pm, and 3 pm.  Busses will be staggered to eliminate wait time as much as possible.  

Busses will pick up at TTUHSC at the front entrance of the Academic Classroom Building (ACB) and dropoff at the Akron Street entrance to the Allen Theatre.  Please plan appropriately in order to give yourself enough time to arrive at the Allen Theatre prior to 9 am.  

If you are coming from within the Lubbock community or coming from out-of-town, there will be VERY limited parking on the main campus because of other conferences in the area and the TTU vs. UT game weekend scheduled closures.  We suggest that you park at TTUHSC and ride the bus over or plan on arriving early at TTU and speak to the parking attendants about available spaces.  Guest parking is available at TTUHSC off the 4th street entrance for non faculty, staff or students of TTUHSC.

  • Why has the symposium been moved to the Allen Theatre?

The Office of Interprofessional Education is pleased to offer this change of venue for this year's speaker.  Dr. Daminia is a very dynamic speaker who is in demand throughout the country.  With a new venue that seats approximately 1,000 people, we are able to offer a "live" seat to all our Lubbock participants as well as extend the symposium to other health professionals in the community.  You will especially enjoy the venue change when ZDoggMD enters the room!

  • Is all day attendance at the Fall Symposium required?

Full day attendance at the entire symposium is not required. The morning session is intended for all audiences and the afternoon session is geared towards students. It is recommended that students attend both the morning keynote session and the afternoon case-based learning activity, as the case selection is designed for student interaction in interprofessional teamwork and collaboration.  Certificates of completion will be given to all students who participate in the afternoon case study activity.

  • What is the target audience for the morning session?

The morning session is targeted for all faculty, students and staff.  Dr. Damania's experiences and discussion on patient care are compelling for all audiences.  

Those outside TTUHSC are welcome to attend the symposium.  When selecting your individual ticket, please scroll down to the bottom and select other (non TTUHSC participant).  Please indicate on your registration form any affiliations you may have within the health professions.

  • What is the deadline for registration?

In order to facilitate room assignments and the needs of the Fall Symposium, a registration deadline has been set for October 21, 2016.  

  • How can I download the symposium materials?

The Office of Interprofessional Education is pleased to offer all symposium handouts and case study information through the Guidebook app.  The app can be downloaded from app stores that support your smart phone, android or computer/tablet/laptop.  A confirmation code to access symposium materials will be provided prior to the symposium date.  The information in Guidebook will be updated as it draws closer to the event. 

  • Is lunch provided?

Lunch will be provided to those who request one on the registration page.  Lunch tickets will be given to participates that may be redeemed at any of the food locations within the student union.

Lunch is available to participants who stay for the full day's activities free of charge.

  • Who do I contact with additional questions?

Please contact Christie Beauregard or at 806-743-2028 or at ipe@ttuhsc.edu with any other Fall Symposium questions or needs.
