An Innovative Interprofessional Environment

CLSB 120x180

OHSU's Interprofessional Initiative took a giant step forward with the June 2014 opening of the OHSU/Oregon University System (OUS) Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB) on OHSU's South Waterfront campus. This approximately 500,000-square-foot interprofessional facility brings together students from OHSU, Portland State University, and Oregon State University under one roof, fostering collaboration in undergraduate and graduate education among students and instructors from multiple institutions and academic programs. The CLSB is the primary educational venue for OHSU dental, medical, nursing, pharmacy, and physician assistant students. The CLSB includes lecture halls, a 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Interprofessional Simulation Center.The IPI is enhancing existing and creating new opportunities for IPE-IPCP throughout the university and throughout Oregon, a national leader in healthcare reform and coordinated, patient-centered care.  For additional information on interprofessional simulation at OHSU, you can download the IPE curriculum.
