April 13 marks the third annual Health Professions Education (HPE) Day, an event designed to spark interprofessional collaboration, networking and inspiration for future research and practice supporting educational efforts across the health professions schools at University of Michigan. The Office of Academic Innovation is proud to participate again as an event co-sponsor of HPE Day 2017. The program will include poster and panel sessions, as well as a discussion of best practices in the implementation of interprofessional education from Jeanette Mladenovic, MD, MBA, MACP, Former Executive Vice President and Provost for Oregon Health & Science University.
Later that day, the Department of Health Management and Policy within the U-M School of Public Health will host a panel discussion about The Future of Obamacare: Repeal, Repair or Replace. Dr. Kenneth E. Warner, Avedis Donabedian Distinguished University Professor of Public Health, will moderate a panel discussion about the different policy options for the future of the Affordable Care Act, and the potential impact of changes on the American healthcare system. This panel is held in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the School of Public Health and will also function as part of the upcoming Teach-Out launching May 12.
