MSU Denver faculty, are you looking for a scholarly activity this year?

The MSU Denver Interprofessional Education (IPE) Committee’s first conference is all about facilitating interprofessional communication among faculty to increase the impact of our courses for students. We call on you to help your fellow faculty at MSU Denver understand more about collaboration with colleagues from other departments and disciplines.
