Seed Grants

The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) has placed a high priority on interprofessional education (IPE), which is among the priorities of President Jay A. Perman, MD. The University’s Center for Interprofessional Education has awarded seed grants for the fifth year to encourage faculty members to work together for this purpose. Three faculty teams from multiple schools have been chosen for work to be completed in 2019. A symposium to highlight each project will be scheduled for November 2019.
