About Us

The Center is composed of a small core staff working collaboratively with administrators, faculty, staff, and students from the colleges of Agriculture,Communication and Information, Dentistry, Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Social Work and is supported by the Offices of the Provost and the Executive Vice President of Health Affairs. Together we share the vision that University of Kentucky will lead U.S. universities and academic medical centers in developing, validating and promoting interprofessional education.


The Center for Interprofessional Health Education collaborates with University of Kentucky faculty to facilitate the development, validation, dissemination, and promotion of interprofessional education.


The Center will be a national leader in the development and dissemination of innovative pedagogy that contributes to the practice of state-of-the-art, team-based healthcare.
