Human-Animal Interactions and Therapies: An Interprofessional Course

This poster describes the development of a very unique new course involving interprofessional education. Students learn about the many aspects of human-animal interactions using live animal experiences, speakers, research and collaborative work between disciplines. Working with animals is a new and upcoming field that can be incorporated into all areas of study.
