Commitment to Interprofessional Education

The Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine is an institution in which learning occurs in a supportive, safe and collegial setting. Students develop knowledge and skills through both self-directed as well as collaborative efforts in which teamwork, cooperation, and mutual respect are essential components of the learning process. The role of faculty and administration is one of facilitation and providing structure, opportunity, guidance as well as support to assist students in their acquisition of skills which will facilitate life-long learning. 

Interprofessional education is a vital component of the educational process at the School of Medicine. Students in the School of Medicine train in conjunction with students from the School of Nursing and School of Health Sciences to develop and enhance collegiality, teamwork and leadership skills that will prepare each graduate to be an effective and efficient member of a health care team in a rapidly changing health care environment.
