How to build the perfect team?

Interprofessional Education (IPE) is most associated with the health and social care professions (e.g., social work, pharmacy, MD/DOs, nursing, occupational therapy,  physical therapy, physician assistant, dentistry and public health) learning and working together in a patient-centered environment.  However, increasingly interprofessional collaboration (i.e., the ability to communicate effectively within a team-based work environment) is becoming a global movement in the workplace.

The New York Times recently produced a Sunday Magazine edition that focuses on teamwork among and between employees.  Important questions about the what makes a ‘good team’ and how these new work environments are shaping business culture and human enterprise can be found here.

CUW continues to be on the cutting edge in terms of Interprofessional Education for both undergraduates and graduate students in the health professions.  All students, regardless of major/minor, are welcome to contact Michael Oldani, Coordinator of IPE @ CUW, for more information on opportunities and IPE certification.


First Annual Mind-Body-Spirit Wellness Fair

The School of Pharmacy Student Organizations and the Interprofessional Education Program at CUW would like to invite students, faculty and the community to the first annual Mind-Body-Spirit Wellness Fair on Sunday, April 10th – immediately following Chapel Service with President Ferry – at 11:30am.

CUW students involved in health and social care professions, along with faculty, will guide participants through a ‘passport to health and wellness’ as they learn about eating healthy, staying fit, and preventing chronic diseases.

Participants who complete the passport will also be eligible for a drawing for health-related items, including a grand prize for a Fitbit. A light lunch with refreshments will be provided as well.

Please join us!

If you have questions, please contact the Campus Coordinator for IPE – Michael Oldani at or by phone (262-243-2779).
