Event Details

Register today for the 2017 IPE Fall Symposium brought to you by the Office of Interprofessional Education at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.  The focus of the IPE Fall Symposium is to bring healthcare professionals together to learn about and practice with one another interprofessional education, teamwork, and collaboration.

This year's symposium topic is Interprofessional Teamwork: Embracing the Patient Journey. The featured keynote speaker is Marcus Engel.

Marcus Engel, is a speaker, author, and respected thought leader who inspires and educates healthcare professionals with narratives of unforgettable patient experiences.  As a college freshman, Marcus was blinded and nearly killed after being struck by a drunk driver in a car accident.  Through two years of rehab, over 300 hours of reconstructive facial surgery and adaptation through a multitude of life changes, Marcus remained committed to his goal of recapturing life.  

Marcus is the founder of the "I'm Here Movement", a non-profit 501(C)3 organization. Through this movement, Marcus is helping change the culture of care with two little words - I'm Here.   It is a global effort to help healthcare professionals embrace the power they have to comfort patients by simply being present.

Marcus' keynote presentation, "The Other End of the Stethoscope" chronicles his lengthy recovery from massive trauma and share tales of the compassionate communication and teamwork shown by his care team.  For more information on Marcus Engel please visit his website at https://marcusengel.com or the I am Here Movement at http://imheremovement.org.  

The morning session of the 2017 IPE Fall Symposium will be broadcast to all TTUHSC campuses from the Overton Hotel and Conference Center in Lubbock.  Each TTUHSC campus will host a case based learning activity for all students during the afternoon session. 

The IPE Fall Symposium is a registered TTUHSC IPE Learning Activity and participating students who attend the afternoon session will receive a certificate for their attendance.
