Interprofessional Education

Interprofessional Education Collaborative

AACOM is a partner in the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC), along with the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the American Dental Education Association (ADEA), and the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH).
