Aberdeen Interprofessional Education Research

 

About us

 

During 2003 Aberdeen started a one year NES (NHS Education for Scotland) funded pilot project was developed by the School of Pharmacy at The Robert Gordon University and the Medical School at the University of Aberdeen with the aim to develop and deliver a common shared learning programme for undergraduate and professional qualifying courses in medicine (University of Aberdeen) and pharmacy (The Robert Gordon University).

This study demonstrated a desire for shared learning amongst undergraduate health and social care students and willingness for this to happen on the behalf of both universities.


What we deliver

The aim of current Scottish Government funded project here in Aberdeen is to develop and deliver a common shared learning programme as and where appropriate, to undergraduate and professional qualifying courses across all health and social care subjects at both universities. This attitude of shared learning will promote common learning strategies at all levels of study and underline the importance of transferable skills such as communication and team working.
