We like to look at healthcare education a little differently. And it’s a unique approach, both here in California and across the country. Here modern medicine unites with ancient and traditional healing arts to create an environment of experiential learning. SCU’s groundbreaking Interprofessional Education (IPE) model combines curriculum, clinic, community, and clubs to help you develop a broader base of knowledge and gain a deeper appreciation for different perspectives on care. The depth and breadth of this dynamic experience will prepare you to one day serve as a vital part of an Interprofessional care team.
IPE responds to an urgent need for health professionals to work together to create new models of care. Future healthcare professionals must be better prepared to lead and collaborate in interprofessional teams.
