Registration is open for the fall semester Knowledge Exchanges offered by the University of New England Center to Advance Interprofessional Education and Practice, or CAIEP. Programming includes virtual presentations and interactive discussion groups for students and professionals in the health care fields. The events are free and open to the public.

The series includes six virtual events this fall with two in-person follow-up discussions and an interprofessional student research showcase to wrap up the semester.

Since its inception, the center has fostered teamwork among health professions students through Knowledge Exchange events, immersive service-learning opportunities, team-based community initiatives, and collaborative research projects.
