This 57,000-square-foot, three-story building was designed to promote an interprofessional education model, allowing students from several disciplines, including pharmacy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant studies, exercise science, psychology, and healthcare business, to study, interact, and learn with and from one another. Hands-on experience with students from other related healthcare disciplines provides a valuable opportunity to fully understand the value of interprofessional activities in everyday practice.
