Words from our students and faculty


I learned that people from different professions are quite similar overall. This was my first IPE and it was an excellent introduction!

Ahmad Mahdi, MED I student and participant in the “Foods That Fight Cancer” practice IPE activity


To see a student and a customer chatting over lettuce in the produce department each with a sparkle in his eye was an experience I wish I could have “bottled” and taken home with me. 

Dr. Nancy Chedid, Lead Faculty for the “Foods That Fight Cancer” practice IPE activity


Everyone knows things in their specific major and we can all help eah other. People believe us more when we’re all together!

Claire El-Jor, Dietetic intern and participant in the “Foods That Fight Cancer” practice IPE activity


I participated in 4 IPE Steps and if it hasn’t been for my work load, I would have loved to take more!

Rama El Dukar, Social Work student

Interprofessional collaboration helps to improve safety and quality of care.


Student attendance continues to increase each academic year.


All health-related majors are actively participating in the IPE program.


Our students learn about effective communication, collaboration, and teamwork among health and social care professionals.


The program will partner with post-licensure professionals to foster life-long learning and creation of environments that support interprofessional health and social care collaboration.
