Over the course of this fall semester, I have gained a wealth of knowledge from the Professional Issues I course. Through the development of skills for application of various theories and concept, that relate to learning, teaching, communicating and motivating others.

However, 4 articles reviewed did find that IPE had no impact on the professional practice or patient care. Meaning that IPE was not successful in these trials. Therefore, the authors left the idea of IPE up to interpretation until more evidence is found to back the
