Since its inception in 1999, the Meharry-Vanderbilt Alliance has sought to create innovative avenues for interprofessional and educational collaboration that not only allow students and faculty to share and apply their knowledge, but also leave a lasting impact on the community. Our developing programs leverage the strengths of the Meharry-Vanderbilt Alliance and its existing IPE faculty collaborative.

This inter-institutional, interprofessional design aims to:

  • support opportunities for shared IPE curriculum
  • utilize community engaged, service learning platforms to create mutual educational and community benefit
  • build capacity and expose students and educators to interprofessional competencies
