Health Professions Education Day 2017

08:00 AM to 01:00 PM

Michigan League Ballroom

The third annual Health Professions Education Day took place on April 13, 2017.

The University of Michigan is unique with ten health science schools across three campuses that share the core missions of preparing future clinicians and scholars, while caring for patients within a number of health care systems. Within each school, faculty members are actively engaged in educational experimentation and innovation, and many of our educators are working collaboratively through the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education to develop and teach novel courses focused on interprofessional health education.

The day’s highlights included sharing of our efforts in interprofessional education and collaborative care, both in poster and panel formats and a discussion of best practices in the implementation of interprofessional education. We aim to continue the growth of collaborations across the health science schools and the broader University of Michigan community and campuses.
