The Center for Patient Partnerships fosters effective partnerships among people seeking healthcare, people providing healthcare, and people making policies that guide the healthcare system.
For two decades the Center for Patient Partnerships has prepared emerging leaders to take on complexity. Whether it’s in a classroom, in the community, or online, our approach grounds students in reflection, listening, and empathy that strengthens one of the key elements found in successful 20th-century leaders: Self-awareness.
