Health Sciences Innovation Fund
In support of UB’s nationally recognized Interprofessional Education Program
Our Interprofessional Education program brings over 2500 health professions students to work in a collaborative, team environment and provide highly effective patient- and population-centered care. Programs include Friday Nights at ER (pictured above), IPE Day, Faculty trainings, Virtual Escape rooms, Simulation events, and much more.
Interprofessional teams enhance the quality of patient care, lower healthcare costs, decrease patients' length of stay, and reduce medical errors. Patients receive safer, high-quality care when health professionals work effectively in a team, communicate productively, and understand each other's roles.
Your support of a vibrant Interprofessional Education Program at UB will seed future initiatives and put our students on the path to being effective, well-rounded health care practitioners and leaders. Sustaining this program will help us to enhance and expand our ability to teach and train our health professions’ students to work in a collaborative, team environment. In return, patients receive safer, higher quality care when health professionals work effectively in a team, communicate productively and understand each other's roles.
