Sandra C. Andrieu currently serves as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Director of Advanced Education at LSUHSC School of Dentistry. She received her MEd and PhD degrees in Curriculum and Instruction and Higher Education Administration, respectively, from the University of New Orleans. She holds the designation of Professor with tenure, and has 45 years of practice as a registered oral health professional including 40 years of experience as a member of the LSUHSC faculty. Dr. Andrieu is Past-President of the American Dental Education Association and served as a member of the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) expert panel that drafted the document, Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Report, in 2011. Following her work with IPEC, Dr. Andrieu served on an ADEA Team Study Group task force to consider competencies needed for graduates of programs in dentistry that address interprofessional matters and provide a suggested curriculum in Interprofessional Education. In 2012, she was appointed inaugural Chair of the LSUHSC Interprofessional Education Committee. The work of this committee led to an LSUHSC IPE elective course that enrolled over 100 students each year from the LSUHSC Schools of Allied Health, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health and the Xavier University of Louisiana (XULA), College of Pharmacy. In 2014-2015, Dr. Andrieu served on the SACSCOC Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) committee that developed IPE as the focus of the QEP for LSUHSC. The work of the QEP committee led to the creation of the LSUHSC Center for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (CIPECP) in 2015. As the Faculty Liaison to the CIPECP from the School of Dentistry, Dr. Andrieu and colleagues transformed the IPE elective into Team Up – a two-year longitudinal interprofessional education experience integrated within the curriculum of all six LSUHSC Schools for all first and second-year students (1,350 in 2019).
