Office of Interprofessional Continuing Health Education

Advancing and Transforming Healthcare


The Office of Interprofessional Continuing Health Education (OICHE serves as Arizona State University’s central hub for accreditation, compliance and planning guidance of continuing education activities offered to the healthcare community.

Our Mission

We strive to optimize health and healthcare team knowledge, innovative skills, values and evidence-based strategies to design, implement and evaluate team-based models of health and healthcare to improve value, enhance the patient experience of care, impact population health, and cultivate the well-being and work life of healthcare providers.

Our Focus

Our program focuses on interprofessional health education.  An educational activity is considered to be interprofessional if it is created by and for the healthcare team and is designed to change the skills/strategy, or performance of the healthcare team or patient outcomes. Interprofessional education (IPCE) is an important way to ensure that health care providers have the necessary understanding, knowledge, training and tools to enable them to implement strategies designed to promote the active participation of each profession in patient care.
