The purpose of the Interprofessional Professional Assessment (IPA) instrument is to evaluate an entry-level health professional's demonstration of professionalism when interacting with members of other health professions.
The IPA may be used by health professionals to evaluate themselves or others including learners, peers, supervisors, or subordinates.
Using the rating scale provided on the instrument, please express your level of agreement with each of the items based on your overall impressions and observations of the individual’s behavior throughout the practice experience. This should represent your final assessment of the individual at the conclusion of the practice experience. Definitions are provided as a context for each of the categories provided.
