1Health Team

The 1Health team is comprised of faculty and staff who are committed to working across all health sciences schools and programs to develop, prepare, coordinate and implement all aspects of the interprofessional education curriculum, in alignment with institutional goals and national standards of excellence.

Faculty members from a variety of health professions offer significant contributions to the 1Health curriculum development by conducting interprofessional research, disseminating information, and creating innovative interprofessional learning opportunities for students. Staff members support these efforts by communicating with stakeholders, recruiting facilitators and volunteers, developing and preparing curricular materials, coordinating schedules, implementing all programmatic aspects of the 1Health curriculum, and gathering the data needed to support continuous curriculum growth and refinement.

Together, this team of faculty and staff provide the leadership needed to ensure that the interprofessional education curriculum offered to health professional students at the University of Minnesota is strategically integrated through a coordinated and collaborative approach. Team members also work closely with the Program Directors and the Associate Deans for Education across the health sciences to ensure the 1Health curriculum strategically meets the shared educational goals for interprofessional collaboration and education for our students.
