Health Professions Education Day 2016

Announcing Health Professions Education Day to be held on June 1, 2016 from 9am – 1pm.

The University of Michigan is unique with seven outstanding health science schools that share the core missions of preparing future clinicians and scholars, while caring for patients within a single health care system. Within each school, faculty members are actively engaged in educational experimentation and innovation, but the ideas are not always visible to like-minded educators in other schools across campus. With the recent formation of the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education, we can collectively create a community space focused on innovation within health professions education.

HPE Day is an opportunity to share and disseminate scholarly efforts completed or in progress, and to spark the dialogue required to synergize our work. This event will bring together educational scholars, practitioners, researchers and students to share best practices and explore opportunities for collaboration and innovation around Health Professions Education and Interprofessional Education in particular..  The day’s highlights will include sharing of our efforts in interprofessional education and collaborative care, both in poster and panel formats.  And will include a discussion of best practices in the implementation of interprofessional education. We also aim to continue the growth of collaborations across the health science schools and the broader University of Michigan community and campuses.  The plenary speaker is Jean Nagelkerk, PhD, FNP, FNAP, Vice Provost for Health, Grand Valley State University.
