Introducing the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education
To strengthen interprofessional education and advance the aim of improving health of the population, enhancing patient care and controlling costs
To close the gap between higher education and practice communities by rigorously aligning their needs and interests
We will engage higher education and health system leaders in a “nexus” to incubate innovative ideas, define the field and guide interprofessional education program development and research.
The “nexus” is the shared ground, shared conversation and shared language necessary to create true collaboration between education and practice.
