An interprofessional approach to care

Our college brings an interprofessional educational and collaborative approach to health care.  This bold new approach significantly improves patient outcomes as doctors, nurses, dietitians, social workers and other health providers work together to treat the whole patient.

Our college was founded on this philosophy. Students in nursing, dietetics, audiology, speech-language pathology, social work and other fields will learn side by side; then, as professionals, it will be natural for them to treat patients collaboratively. Patient care will improve, job satisfaction will increase, and the work will be more rewarding.

As a student here, you will benefit from our close ties with such health systems as the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Summa Health System, Akron Children’s Hospital, the Northeast Ohio Medical University and the Austin BioInnovation Institute in Akron.

You'll engage in state-of-the-art simulation experiences, gain clinical experience and spend ample time learning collaboratively with fellow students and seasoned professionals in many disciplines.
