The University of New England Center for Excellence in Collaborative Education (formerly the Interprofessional Education Collaborative) was formally established in 2010. It solidifies UNE’s historic commitment to interprofessional academic and community-based programming that prepares the next generation of health care leaders for team-based practice. Students representing the full range of health professions programs work with one another through interactive collaborative activities that include:
- Team-based case conferences
- Interprofessional simulations
- Interprofessional service learning
- Co-conducted research and scholarship
- Global immersion experiences
- Arts and health projects
- Interprofessional classroom activities
Through this work, students from UNE's various health professions programs come to better understand the roles of other members of the health care team and develop skills to work more effectively to improve quality, safety, and patient-centered care.
Faculty and staff are instrumental in facilitating and modeling interprofessional learning. They generously serve as student mentors, course designers, and faculty trainers, sustaining UNE’s interprofessional learning culture.
