The Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education is one of only six initiatives profiled in the U-M 2016 annual report under the heading of “Teaching and Learning.”

The annual report reflects U-M President Mark Schlissel’s belief that U-M provides “the best and most forward-looking undergraduate, graduate and professional education available today to best prepare the leaders of tomorrow.” It provides details on U-M’s financial position and offers a glimpse into the university’s comprehensive offerings in education, research, public service and patient care on the Ann Arbor campus, as well as educational opportunities on the regional campuses in Flint and Dearborn.

The report explains that IPE at U-M is “designed to break down the traditional silos that separate health professions by creating opportunities for collaborative and engaged learning across disciplines,” with an end goal of preparing professionals who will work more effectively together to improve patient care.
