Plymouth Integrative Health and Social Care Education Centre (PIHC)

Welcome to PIHC

The Plymouth Integrative Health and Social Care Education Centre helps ensure students graduate with the skills and knowledge required for collaborative working in health, social care, and many other careers.
The best health and social care, and success in almost any career, depends on collaboration. Effective collaboration requires us to learn with, from, and about each other. Interprofessional learning can also be one of the most rewarding parts of any course and gives students valuable skills and experience in working productively with others.
PIHC is embedded across the Faculty of Health's six schools, with an academic from each acting as PIHC's interprofessional learning lead. By working together to develop joint learning, interprofessional education will become an integral part of those schools' programmes.
