What Our Members Do

Academy member, Maria Wamsley, MD (class of 2002), is director for the UC San Francisco Program for Interprofessional Education and Practice (IPE). Dr. Wamsley and other AME members are active in leading interprofessional efforts at UCSF.

The UCSF Program for Interprofessional Practice and Education (PIPE) enables students from different fields to interact and learn in a way that prepares them for the seamless teamwork of interprofessional collaborative practice that successful modern patient care delivery requires. Students and trainees in health professions build a skill set that will ultimately increase patient safety, reduce errors, maximize efficiencies, and improve quality of care.
