CIH Affiliate Faculty & Ambassador Program

The Center for Interprofessional Health (CIH) Affiliate Faculty & Ambassador Program is an educational continuum designed to engage UMN faculty, staff, or community-based health professionals who are interested in: 

  • interprofessional teaching
  • interprofessional innovations
  • interprofessional practice 
  • and/or faculty-initiated interprofessional research

Beginning in AY 2024-25, this program is expanding to include three distinct roles to support and engage individuals as they progress from the interprofessional knowledge- and skill-development phases and move into more complex interprofessional project engagement and leadership. Program engagement for all three roles will take place throughout the time frame of July - May each year.

Time commitment may vary based upon area of interest and scope of your engagement with the CIH, estimated 25-30 hours; no salary support is provided.
