Interprofessional Education (IPE)
Interprofessional collaboration is an essential cornerstone of modern health care, and the School of Medicine has developed an extensive set of objectives related to interprofessional education and development of interprofessional teamwork skills. An explicit goal of the decision to co-locate SOM with the Seton Hall College of Nursing (CON) and the Seton Hall School of Health and Medical Sciences (SHMS) is to provide opportunities for students from different health profession disciplines to train together. Additionally, we have collaborated with and plan to expand collaboration with the School of Law, the Department of Social Work, and others.
This will occur through formal and informal activities, both on the Interprofessional Health Science Campus and outside of its walls within the clinical environment and the community.
