Join the leaders of the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative Student Engagement Group (SEG), Teresa Cochran and Heather Miselis, along with a panel of students from institutions across the United States, to learn more about interprofessional student groups and initiatives.

- What resources or incentives does your institution offer to participate in interprofessional learning or practice initiatives within your institution?
- What are key points you have learned over the years that allow you to shift from interprofessional learning activities to team-based practice?
- When you think about mentors, what are characteristics that were important in your professional development – what advice would you give others?
