With varied disciplines housed in the college, there is ample opportunity for students to collaborate in classrooms, labs and simulations. That was part of the vision that brought these departments and schools together under one roof in 2005. There are a number of interprofessional projects ongoing in the college. Those include:
Documentation about IPEC's Four Competencies
Values/ethics for Interprofessional Practice
Teams and Teamwork
IPE Instruments - suggested assessment tools, vetted through IPE organizations and the CHHS committee
