Interprofessional Education & Collaborative Practice
"Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team. This is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength."

A citation manager is a software tool that helps you find, save, cite, and organized information sources (articles, books, videos). They are great for large scale research projects, like dissertations and capstone projects. The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences supports three citation managers: EndNote X8, Zotero, and Mendeley.
