IPE Profiles

We want to highlight people invested in the growth of Interprofessional Education and Practice, from local to global. These individuals are an integral component in increasing a culture of value toward the positive impact multidisciplinary and multi-institutional collaborations have on our students, the community, and the field of healthcare.

Expectations for Interprofessional Education and Practice
