Best practices in U.S. healthcare models encourage interprofessional collaboration, co-operation, and communication.
According to the 2010 definition of the World Health Organization, “Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.”
CNUCOP has created a comprehensive, integrated IPE curriculum that includes the CNU College of Medicine, College of Health Sciences, College of Psychology and our partner institutions, Sacramento State University School of Nursing and the Samuel Merritt University School of Nursing. CNUCOP students participate in at least one IPE event each year of their didactic program. For more specific information regarding CNUCOP IPE, please consult the General Catalog.
