What is the ILP?

The Interprofessional Leadership Program (ILP) is a new and exciting opportunity for dual-degree seeking students to enhance their educational experience at NSU.  The program is open to any student who will be supplementing their health-related professional degree with a Master of Public Health and is in good academic standing.  Along with leadership development, the program will focus on community-oriented care, cultural competency, and team-based skills.  These skills, along with the opportunity for national exposure and publication possibilities, will not only be valuable additions to a resume but will also help to set students apart when applying for residency.

The ILP program includes:

  • program-specific electives to be taken as part of the MPH
  • opportunities to participate in national conferences
  • publication possibilities

New! Concurrent PA/MPH Degree
