About Us

IPE Montana's mission is to improve the experience and clinical outcomes for patients/clients and the overall health of communities by preparing future and current health care providers and others to collaborate effectively to deliver high qualilty, patient/community-centered team-based services.

IPE Montana welcomes anyone that wants to get involved in achieving this mission. We welcome all healthcare providers, administrators, students, and others that are interested in improving the health of individuals and communities across the state through the development and implementation of collaborative care models.

We Are Silo Busters!
