Welcome to MAHE-FAIMER!

This program is being launched in Manipal when the world has started believing that Interprofessional education (IPE), learning (IPL) and practice (IPP) can make a difference. Manipal Academy of Higher Education has always been at the forefront of innovative knowledge and new fields of study aimed towards effective health care delivery and community welfare. This programme which is designed in collaboration with FAIMER, Philadelphia will provide leadership, expertise, and support to enhance the coordination and capacity building of interprofessional education and practice aimed towards enhancing health outcomes in this region.

The fellowship programme at MAHE-FAIMER has adopted a multifaceted approach with an interprofessional project as the focus for restructuring professional teams and processes which will support a culture of interprofessional practice. In a long run, we certainly believe that these interventions will certainly contribute towards human development.

Welcome to MAHE-FAIMER!

The social and health problems of today will be conquered by teams. Groups of economists, engineers, urban designers, nutritionists, nurses, teachers, doctors, dentists, and agriculturalists will work in varying configurations to come up with solutions. They will do so with skills they have developed in leadership, consensus building, and program design. By joining this fellowship, we hope that you will not only develop new skills and understanding about educating the teams of tomorrow, but also knit a web of personal connections that will become a durable source of knowledge, ideas, and support.
