Global & Regional Interprofessional Education Plus Program:GRIP Program

The content of study

Learning goals

At GRIP, we have set 12 learning achievement goals that combine “interprofessional collaboration skills” and “social problem-solving skills.” Participating students set a level of attainment suitable for each individual based on their degree and ability, and work on learning to achieve it.

The list of subjects

This program is designed for letting students from multiple countries and fields of specialization learn from one another. It is based on and is an expansion of Chiba University’s interprofessional education (IPE) across schools of Nursing, Medicine, and Pharmaceutical Sciences launched in 2007. The program develops human resources who can tackle various regional-specific health issues worldwide and derive the optimal solutions for each context. The GRIP Program includes a prior learning phase at the JV-Campus, which will be followed by a field study and a virtual workshop for discussing results.
