Who we are
We provide a platform that supports education providers, students and practising professionals in their work to enhance health profession education and training.
Our aim is to improve health outcomes through interprofessional education.
The Australian Pharmacy Council is the independent accreditation body for pharmacy. Our work protects public health by setting and maintaining high standards of pharmacy education.
Our Colloquium is a health education event that emphasises collaboration and communication between health professions. Each year we discuss innovations in education and assessment and how that impacts health profession practice, students and ultimately the consumer.
This interactive, engaging, and entertaining event highlights latest research in health profession education and contemporary practice. Previous topics include student preparedness, virtual reality, mental health, interprofessional collaboration, Indigenous health and transforming curriculum to create resilient professionals.
We are leaders in and strong advocates for Interprofessional Education. We believe that better health outcomes are achieved when we work and learn together.
We endeavour to provide avenues that encourage intellectual curiosity, across the continuum of one’s professional journey.
We treat all people with courtesy and compassion and we encourage open and courageous conversations.
We value the benefits of synergy, sharing experiences, and building relationships.
We embrace similarities and differences between people from every walk of life. We endeavour to deliver a balanced and diverse program.
