Introducing the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education

Our Vision:

To strengthen interprofessional education and advance the aim of improving health of the population, enhancing patient care and controlling costs

Our Goal:

To close the gap between higher education and practice communities by rigorously aligning their needs and interests

 Our Strategy:

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:

The “nexus” is the shared ground, shared conversation and shared language necessary to create true collaboration between education and practice.
