Welcome to IPE at UMMC. This site is a clearinghouse for institutional efforts to promote interprofessional education and activities in the health sciences at UMMC.
Our primary goal is to ensure students have the opportunity to learn “about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” We achieve this by providing opportunities for students, from all seven professional schools, to interact and begin learning how to work successfully with members of other health care disciplines.
Each school at UMMC has a designated IPE Coordinator. The IPE Coordinators meet with the director of IPE to plan, coordinate, and execute events, programs, and activities to support interprofessional collaboration between students from various specialties.

Faculty and staff from all schools at UMMC participate in interprofessional education. Our IPE leaders advocate for interprofessional and team-based education for UMMC’s students. The emphasis on cross-disciplinary training is designed to provide higher quality and more cost-effective health care for patients, families, and communities.
To achieve a healthier Mississippi, IPE provides an array of opportunities through coursework, simulations, and service learning experiences. Learn more about our activities:
