InterProfessional Education


According to the Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education in the United Kingdom and the World Health Organization, “interprofessional education occurs when two or more professions (students, residents and health workers) learn with, about, and from each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.”

CHEER - Community Health Engagement and Empowerment Research Lab


The Community Health Engagement and Empowerment Research (CHEER) Lab provides undergraduate students with hands-on training in research skills and opportunities to work on faculty-led research projects from different disciplines within the School of Health Sciences. Undergraduate students will have opportunities to work with community and academic partners, engage in professional networking, and gain valuable experience in the field of health research. These skills and experiences enhance student success in pursuing graduate training and health careers.

Requirements to participate in CHEER Lab


ECLIPSE - Explorations in Collaborative Leadership and InterProfessional Education Program


The Explorations in Collaborative Leadership and InterProfessional Education (ECLIPSE) program at Oakland University is a novel leadership model designed to foster students’ abilities to become leaders within and beyond our communities through diverse, student-centered, collaborative, and interprofessional experiences. The ECLIPSE program offers collaborative leadership and interprofessional education experiences in all majors within the SHS. Students engaged in the program develop the competencies of interprofessional education (communication, values, roles/responsibilities, and teamwork) through: 1) participation in ECLIPSE workshops; 2) reflections on interprofessional experiences in and outside of academic courses; 3) peer mentorship; and 4) a culminating community impact project. As students participate in ECLIPSE activities, mentoring, and other collaborative leadership experiences on and off campus, they submit reflections detailing the knowledge and skills gained through their experiences. Students complete an e-portfolio, documenting their leadership experiences and personal growth over the course of their education at Oakland University.

Requirements to participate in ECLIPSE


Students interested in participating in ECLIPSE must have declared a School of Health Sciences major.  Students can become involved in ECLIPSE at any time; however, those nearing the end of their degree should consult with the ECLIPSE Coordinator.
