"The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) was one of my most valued educational experiences during my graduate program at UNE. IPEC’s mission focuses on educating university members on relationship-centered health care that is comprehensive, collaborative, caring, and continuous throughout the life cycle. The program offered weekly lectures by guest speakers that focused on issues ranging from healthcare access problems in rural Maine, to transgender healthcare concerns, to the impact of homelessness in Portland.
"The development of my final research project has been one of the most important contributions to my professional growth. With the guidance of my research professor, I constructed a device and research methodology to assist male spinal cord injury patients with self-catheterization."
