The fourth annual Interprofessional Education Day at the University of Maryland, Baltimore provides an opportunity for our students and faculty to come together to learn with, from, and about each other. On behalf of the co-directors of the Center for Interprofessional Education, thank you for committing to advance your knowledge and skills to provide team-based care.
