Interprofessional Case Conference

The College of Health Professions hosts seven annual Interprofessional Case Conferences for students in which faculty and community health professionals present case studies on current healthcare issues.

Through this series, students will be seated in interprofessional teams to learn more about other professions while exploring a topic through the four Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPECcore competencies (pdf).
