Who we are
The Office of Interprofessional Education at the University of Florida has been providing interprofessional learning opportunities for multiple health professions students since it's formation. Our office, in conjunction with the six Health Science Center Colleges, develops learning opportunities that cross college boundaries. These joint educational experiences, like the Putting Families First program, will result in health professionals who have the attitudes, skills and behaviors to communicate effectively with other health care providers, can work effectively in health care teams, and can demonstrate professional conduct during interprofessional encounters. Ultimately, joint learning opportunities will lead to higher quality, safer clinical care.
