The IPE society is a pioneering, award-winning, inter-university society across Aberdeen & Robert Gordon Universities. We have been the largest academic society the past few years. Interprofessional education is a key outcome emphasised by all regulators of healthcare professions. The IPE society promotes interprofessional learning by facilitating opportunities for health care students to come together in a team based and practical setting. All events are student lead and structured to address a specific topic with students from each health care profession leading workshops to explore their profession's role within the scenario.
So whether you want to learn from your peers and other healthcare, social and science students or jump into the deep end and teach at our events. We are the society for you!

Halloween is a time best-known for getting into the shoes of another character (literally). For one night you can don that superhero cape you’ve always wanted to wear and be someone else. But it’s not just humans who can take part in the action…
University can, at times, be very stressful and time-consuming. As students, we often have multiple commitments, and 24 hours are just not enough. Solution? Improving your time management.
