Center For Interprofessional Practice And Education

Centers for Excellence

Educating, training, and supporting the next generation of collaborative healthcare leaders.

The Future of Healthcare is Interprofessional

When healthcare practitioners from different disciplines collaborate, they share their distinctive skill sets and learn to consider and value the insights of other health professionals. As a result, patients receive comprehensive treatment plans and the highest quality care possible. Across all 14 schools at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, we immerse our students in this team-based delivery model. It’s the future of healthcare.

The Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education has a Key Role to Play in the Future of Healthcare


Students and faculty share what they’re learning in the classroom and out in the field with students in other disciplines at MCPHS. Online students bring in perspectives from across the country and around the world.


At MCPHS, nurses, pharmacists, acupuncturists, physical therapists, and representatives of other healthcare specialties pool their skills to provide patients with enhanced levels of care.


Our students and faculty have established research partnerships with healthcare and life-science professionals at some of the world’s most renowned hospitals and healthcare institutions—many in the immediate neighborhood of our campuses.


Members of the MCPHS community work in key roles in healthcare initiatives wherever their expertise is needed and valued—locally and around the globe.
