In 2015 The Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation awarded UNE $600,000 to expand its interprofessional team-based curriculum to all health professions programs. The ultimate goals of this grant are to ensure all health care professionals who are UNE graduates are equipped with the necessary team-based skills to ensure high-quality patient care, and to address shortages of health care professionals in rural Maine. 

Students will participate in team-based trainings in clinical settings, particularly in Maine’s rural community health centers.
