Promoting Interprofessional Education for Students - PIPES
The MIPERC organization PIPES (Promoting Interprofessional Education for Students) provides students with the opportunity to learn how to work with other health professions. The organization assumes two responsibilities for contributing to interprofessional education:
- Facilitate the provision of highest quality health care through collaborative practice
- Provide the venue in which students from each of the health professions share important topics and concepts to better understand other health care professions and roles on the team
PIPES aids in the development of the individual student's professional role with opportunities to provide volunteer and/or research opportunities in the West Michigan community.
