Center for Interprofessional Healthcare Education

Changes to health care delivery begin with a change in health care education. Perhaps no other medical school in the country is as uniquely equipped to facilitate such change as the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, where interprofessional education is essential to the mission.

The Center for Interprofessional Healthcare Education offers innovative opportunities for students in Quinnipiac's Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences to learn and practice together, identify effective and efficient delivery options, and understand and enhance each other's clinical skills. Examples of current and planned reciprocal learning opportunities include:
  • Team learning with mannequins and standardized patients. These exercises include simulated cardiac arrests, home visits, ambulatory and in-hospital care.
  • Student Ethics Committee. Multidisciplinary teams of health professions students mirror the composition of hospital ethics committees.
  • Interdisciplinary grand rounds. Students from all disciplines participate in this important learning tool where presentations are made to inform all on best practices.
  • Clinical rotations. During ambulatory and inpatient clerkships, students work together on assignments designed for hands-on patient care.
