A Quality Enhancement Plan

Clinical and Community-Based Interprofessional Education

We will develop interprofessional educational experiences in the hospitals, clinics, classrooms, and community to promote mutual understanding of disciplinary roles, collaboration in planning patient care, joint accountability for decision making and outcomes, and the benefits to the patient and the community of interprofessional collaboration.

About the QEP

The concept of quality enhancement is central to the accreditation principles of the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
