Interprofessional education (also known as inter-professional education or “IPE”) refers to occasions when students from two or more professions in health and social care learn together during all or part of their professional training with the object of cultivating collaborative practice for providing client- or patient-centered health care. Because the RHIC is a collaborative partnership between eight public and private organizations who represent a wide variety  of health professions, the opportunities for providing interprofessional engagement through simulation is immense. In fact, over 30 health disciplines utilizes the Simulation Center in collaborative practice, learning from, about, and with each other on a regular basis. Healthcare professionals don't work on islands when they get done with school....they work in teams and the RHIC helps train them to practice that way.
