This chapter is written by two people who have different relationships with and observations about the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (referred to below as the National Center), based at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA. The first author (Barbara Brandt) is the director of the National Center and created the original vision for its formation. The second author (Jill Thistlethwaite) was an Australian-American Fulbright senior scholar at the centre for 4 months in late 2014. We are presenting the chapter in a mix of first and third person voices to capture our personal reflections as well as more objective details on the progress of the centre. We begin with a history of the National Center, its vision and aims, its evaluation framework and the leadership model.
