Center for Interprofessional Education celebrates launch

July 1 marked the official launch of the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education, which will serve more than 4,000 U-M students and expand on a program more than a year in the making.

“Our university has long engaged in interdisciplinary research and practice. We are now committing significant resources to make sure that the same collaboration exists in the education of our students,” says Frank Ascione, founding director of the center and former dean of the College of Pharmacy.

To help celebrate the new organization, center leaders are asking the community to participate in an inaugural Health Professions Education Day 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sept. 16 in the Michigan Union Rogel Ballroom. Read more here.
