The Interprofessional Healthcare Residential College (IHRC) is a high-impact, living-learning program designed for highly-motivated students who have a passion for interprofessional healthcare. At its root, interprofessional healthcare requires individuals to work collaboratively in diverse team settings and serve a wide array of peoples and populations.  This requires teamwork and a passion for serving others.  It also requires a cross-functional understanding of healthcare fields and professions.  To this end, the IHRC is dedicated to helping students learn more about a variety of healthcare majors and professions through team-based learning opportunities that involve connected coursework as well as an assortment of co-curricular opportunities, including professionalism, leadership, and community-service activities.
