Seven Universities Participate in Conference on Inter-Professional Education

Seven Schools of Medicine and Nursing to Participate in Carnegie-Macy Conference to Advance Inter-Professional Education.  Available at http://www.carnegiefoundation.org/newsroom/press-releases/medicine-nursing-carnegie-macy-conference

Seven universities with both a medical and nursing program were selected by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching to participate in a national conference to develop new teaching methods which incorporate both fields of study.  One theory behind the program is that if nursing students and medical students learn together in a clinical setting they will work more collaboratively and communicate more effectively when they practice medicine in a real medical practice.

The conference will address three key themes: integration, systems improvement, and professionalism.  The institutions chosen to participate in the conference were chosen for what they have already accomplished in inter-professional education.
