The University of Michigan is unique with nine health science schools across three campuses that share the core missions of preparing future clinicians and scholars, while caring for patients within a number of health care systems. Within each school, faculty members are actively engaged in educational experimentation and innovation, and many of our educators are working collaboratively through the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education to develop and teach novel courses focused on interprofessional healtheducation.

In an effort to provide an opportunity to share and disseminate scholarly efforts completed or in progress, and to spark the dialogue required to synergize our work, the Division of Professional Education in the Department of LearningHealth Sciences in the Medical School, along with the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education announce the 2nd Annual Health ProfessionsEducation Day:
