The ePrePP project was designed to enhance student learning in healthcare placements to ease the transition from student to professional. The project was led by a group representing medicine, nursing, pharmacy and pedagogy and has applications for not only healthcare disciplines but also the wider student body. A digital platform created though the project incorporates shared competencies, digital resources, and ePortfolios with the aim of enriching learning on clinical placement and nurturing inter-professional collaboration. The resources are accessed daily both nationally and internationally and the project also stimulated the development of a Professional Practice module for medicine in UCC.
