Interprofessional Education and Research Building provides an environment for interprofessional education in which students and staff from different health professions (including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and nursing) learn together. It houses the Clinical Simulation Center, the Medical Innovation Center and other facilities.
The center provides simulation-based educational programs for students of the School of Medicine (Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Health Sciences), the School of Dental Medicine and the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy as well as staff of Hokkaido University Hospital (e.g., doctors, nurses and pharmacists).
The Medical Innovation Center was established as a fruit of the Matching Program for Innovations in Future Drug Discovery and Medical Care. At the facility, researchers from Hokkaido University and private companies work closely together in promoting cutting-edge interdisciplinary education and research through industry-academia collaboration.
This space includes seminar rooms for students and staff of the School of Medicine (Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Health Sciences), the School of Dental Medicine and the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy. It is also used as a venue for practical training, conferences, self-study and other events for staff of Hokkaido University Hospital.
