Population health management requires cross-sectoral collaboration within and outside of health sciences professions to effectively address our current societal health priorities and inequities. Exposing health professions students to a competency-based framework that focuses on community engagement early in their educational training lays the foundation for building the necessary partnerships with communities to promote health. Aligned with our institutions mission, the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center's Interprofessional Education (IPE) Team is designing a required interprofessional community engaged curriculum for all nursing, medicine, pharmacy, physician assistant, and occupational and physical therapy students to be implemented in Fall of 2015.'
