Center for Interprofessional Education and Practice

The Waldron College of Health and Human Services has implemented an array of interprofessional learning, co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities across the units, which demonstrate the commitment of our leadership to interprofessional education and practice. Our current annual interprofessional initiatives include:

  • The Waldron College Interprofessional Symposium and Expo has successfully brought together the departments and schools from within the college and across the university, as well as partners throughout the surrounding communities, to address the collaborative networks that now enhance student learning and provide improvements in community health and human services across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • The Interprofessional Education and Practice Symposium was created to provide an interprofessional learning opportunity for our students to better understand their role and the roles of others, and acquire the skills to interact with other disciplines for the benefit of a client. These skills include respectful communication, negotiation, advocacy, and leadership.
