We believe health care is a collective effort in which safer, higher quality treatment is better achieved through team-care. This philosophy has inspired our 21st century approach to contemporary health professions education.

Students have a diversity of opportunities — through our core curriculum as well as their own program of study — to learn and practice together across disciplines and departments. It’s an interprofessional approach to education that promotes collaboration in clinical environments. Core topics of study include:

  • Leadership and ethics
  • Health policy
  • Epidemiology
  • Biostatistics
  • Health informatics
