Committees and Work Groups

Committees and work groups supporting the implementation of interprofessional practice and education at Ohio State consist of faculty, staff, learners, administrators, and community members representing patients and healthcare team members. Together, they help form our mission, vision, and priorities and enable the successful attainment of our goals, advise and power the development of new initiatives and programs, review program evaluation and assessment data, and make recommendations for ongoing improvement.
