Let’s listen in on a conversation with Yvonne (Prosthetics and Orthotics), Shauna (Sonography), Tami (Sonography) and Connie (Nursing) discussing why they believe IPE curriculum is important in health science education.

How do faculty support our healthcare partners?

Clinical Trainers Workshops

The School of Health Sciences Allied Health programs proudly present an annual workshop free for all preceptors who support our students in their clinical education in Diagnostic and Advanced Practice, Laboratory Sciences, and Allied Health programs! This is an excellent opportunity to learn, grow, and share learning and teaching experiences in an Interprofessional setting.

IPE extends beyond participation in workshops. School of Health Sciences programs also collaborate with other professions and industry to create IPE experiences for their students in online curriculum and clinical/practice/project courses.
