AHC names leader for new cross-disciplinary education initiative

Gwen Halaas, M.D.

Gwen Wagstrom Halaas, M.D., an assistant professor in the University’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, will lead the Academic Health Center’s new Center for Interprofessional Education.

In her new position, Halaas will guide the center as it formalizes opportunities for students to work across health disciplines. The center emerged as a priority from 2005-06 faculty task forces asked to recommend ways to help the University become one of the top three public research universities in the world.

Halaas, who graduated from Harvard Medical School, has worked in medical education since 1986, serving as assistant director and program director of two family medicine residency programs. She has directed the Medical School’s Rural Physician Associate Program since 2004.
