Student Advisory Committee

SAC provides a vehicle to communicate student perspectives related to IPE to faculty, deans, and the health science schools.  Students are invited to apply March 8 for next year’s IPE Student Advisory Committee (SAC) co-chair positions. 

Founded in 2018, the IPE Student Advisory committee is responsible to, and directed by, the Executive Committee (EC) of the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education. The overarching charge of the Student Advisory committee is to increase and promote active and meaningful participation in IPE among students, with the ultimate goal of ensuring students are prepared to work in collaborative environments.
