Virginia Commonwealth University

Make it real.


Inter Health Professionals Alliance (IHPA)

The IHPA is one of the only interdisciplinary outreach groups on the Medical College of Virginia Campus of Virginia Commonwealth University. We have representatives from the Schools of Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work, Biomedical Engineering and participants of the VCU Dietetics Internship program.

The goal of our group is to provide health education and public outreach projects in underserved Richmond communities through a collaborative effort with professional students from Virginia Commonwealth University. We strive to foster lasting relationships to cultivate a network of healthcare professionals that are rooted in teamwork and collaboration. This will not only encourage such professional relationships during our time at MCV, but will encourage an interdisciplinary focus when working with our patients long into the future, to provide high quality, well-rounded care.
