Info on membership and governance

Information about the committee and criteria for membership are available in the Documents section. If you are an academic, a practitioner, a scholar, a student or a policy maker in a region where there is currently no network for collaborative practice and interprofessional education, we would like to encourage you to form a regional network and seek WCC membership.

We hope to see you at the next inspiring ATBH conference, in Auckland, New Zealand in 2018.
