SHAPED - the Swiss Health Alliance for Interprofessional Education

SHAPED - short for the "Swiss Health Alliance for Interprofessional Education" - is a student-based project which aims to further interprofessional education (IPE) within the health care professions in Switzerland.

Our goal is, in the long run,  to promote IPE in Switzerland and thereby strengthen collaboration in the health care sector. We are convinced that this is not only something future patients will profit from, but also a key factor that will lead to a more sustainable working atmosphere in health care institutions.

To reach this goal, SHAPED creates opportunities for students across all health professions to improve their interprofessional skills and actively engage in interprofessional work and exchange.

"SHAPED is committed to strengthening interprofessional education and cooperation in the Swiss healthcare system."
