MUSC students, faculty, clinicians and staff members continue to set the pace for leadership and innovation when it comes to interprofessional (IP) practice and education at the university and national levels. Learning to work effectively as team members is critical for our students and MUSC healthcare practitioners and faculty are actively involved in mentoring students for this role. Examples from our programs and activities are highlighted in this section to demonstrate the depth and breadth of our leadership and innovation.
