The Interprofessional Education (IPE) Passport is an innovative curricular model that addresses the needs of learners across seven health professions to meet discipline-specific IPE accreditation requirements. In addition, the IPE Passport capitalized on existing grassroots IPE activities and developed a process for reviewing and approving IPE activities in alignment with IPE accreditation requirements. The approval process was structured to ensure alignment with the Interprofessional Education Collaborative’s Core Competencies. In 10 months, 50 Passport activities were reviewed and 47 were approved. All activities assess at least three Interprofessional Education Collaborative Core Competencies and 66% assess all four. In year 1, over 30 activities were successfully implemented, 11 of which included distance learners. The complexities of ensuring positive outcomes, confounded by the need to drive culture change, led to a model that meets the needs of many learners in a variety of settings. The intent of this manuscript is to describe the lessons and challenges learned in designing and implementing the IPE Passport in response to meet the diverse IPE needs.
