“This is an opportunity for selected fellows to learn more about interprofessional education, develop those skills and then give back to the UAB community.”

“We want to develop a community of leaders across UAB,” said Allison Shorten, director for the CIPES Office of Interprofessional Curriculum, which brings together undergraduate and post-graduate learners from more than one school or discipline into a common educational experience and environment. “This is an opportunity for selected fellows to learn more about interprofessional education, develop those skills and then give back to the UAB community by developing and implementing a project by the end of a one-year program.”
