Interprofessional Education Collaborative

Main Content


Welcome to the IPEC at UMMC. This site is a clearinghouse for institutional efforts to promote interprofessional education and activities in the health sciences at UMMC.

Our primary goal is to ensure students have the opportunity to learn “about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” We achieve this by providing opportunities for students, from all seven professional schools, to interact and begin learning how to work successfully with members of other health care disciplines.
