The Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic Health Sciences (OAVPAHS) leads the transformation and integration of innovative interprofessional education among the health sciences schools, colleges and programs to ensure that every learner acquires the competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice. 

OAVPAHS also expands interprofessional education beyond the health science schools/colleges/programs (e.g. education and liberal arts) for opportunities to prepare students for collaborations that will address health care needs of individuals, communities and populations and reshape health care delivery. 

OAVPAHS reports directly to the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and works in close collaboration with the Office of Academic Clinical Affairs.
