Interprofessional education is a focus of the college, which recognizes the key role that effective teamwork and collaboration between fields plays in improving the quality and safety of health care. "By equipping students with interprofessional experiences before entering professional settings, Beaver College of Health Sciences graduates leave with the ability to make significant contributions and spearhead interprofessional teamwork in their fields," said Dr. Gary McCullough, associate dean for Graduate Education for the Beaver College of Health Sciences and IPE Day organizer.
