Interprofessional Health Studies at AUT

This page provides an overview of the Interprofessional Health Studies papers and qualifications (courses) that you can study at AUT. See links to paper descriptions and outlines of each degree or qualification.


The School of Interprofessional Health Studies develops and teaches the core interdisciplinary papers in the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences degree programmes. The Interprofessional papers bring students and teachers from different disciplines together in an educational forum with the goal of connecting and integrating each discipline's principles and approaches to solve problems faster and more effectively. This approach helps students work collaboratively with other professionals when they enter the workforce.
