What is Interprofessional Education (IPE)?

Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes (WHO, 2010).

The College of Health and Human Services is committed to providing learning opportunities for our students that connect disciplines, promote teamwork, foster mutual understanding, and advance health for individuals and populations.

CHHS IPE Speed Networking Event
