The Center for Interprofessional Health Education

Welcome to the University of Kentucky Center for Interprofessional Health Education. With partners including the Colleges of Dentistry, Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, Social Work and Communication and Information, our center is devoted to facilitating the design, implementation and evaluation of interprofessional education experiences for students and providing professional development in the arena of interprofessional education for faculty. We do this to ensure team-ready graduates who are well prepared to enter a rapidly changing health care delivery system in which emerging models of collaborative heath care are the rule.

James Ballard, Center Director

It is our pleasure to partner with colleagues among the professional programs at UK and beyond to develop the next generation of professionals who are dedicated and prepared to optimize health systems with a specific focus on embracing, understanding, and engaging in interprofessional collaboration. This will bring us closer to the goal of achieving the Quadruple Aim. Please feel free to contact us to share ideas about opportunities for learners within the frame of interprofessional education.
