Rutgers School of Dental Medicine Vice Dean Kim Fenesy was selected as one of 23 leaders nationwide to be named to the Interprofessional Education Collaborative’s (IPEC) Core Competencies Working Group. Dr. Fenesy will represent Rutgers University and the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) on this nationally recognized committee and is the only member of the group representing the dental profession.

According to IPEC, the Core Competencies Working Group will “serve as the key functioning unit for the review of evidence and generation of main proposals for the revision of the [2016] IPEC Core Competencies and will work alongside an Advisory Group to provide recommendations. After the project team offers their proposals and suggestions, IPEC will work with its members, external stakeholders, and communities of interest on eliciting additional input and feedback. The update process is slated to begin in June 2021 with a tentative release in early 2023.”
