Susan M. Gerik, M.D. Greetings,

synergy, our Interprofessional Education initiative, is now entering its third year.

For those of you new to UTMB, synergy may best be described as the continuous process of bringing students and faculty, from each of the four schools, together for selected learning experiences. Each learning experience supports the development of knowledge and a mutual understanding for the roles of all health-related disciplines working to improve patient care.

I am looking forward to a great year for all of our students. I also encourage you to participate in synergy activities and to share your ideas on interprofessional education. Additionally, you may browse the web site to learn more about synergy.
