Interprofessional education is the model for patient-centered care. Penn’s unique single campus for undergraduate, graduate and professional schools allows seamless interprofessional education in medicine, dentistry, nursing, law, and social work disciplines and facilitates team training.
The School of Medicine encourages students to expand their learning in areas that are evidently relevant and also in the wide range of arts and sciences. Our “One University” concept allows medical students to take courses in other schools without additional cost.
