FAIMER and Manipal University are pleased to announce the launch of the Manipal University-FAIMER International Institute for Leadership in Interprofessional Education (MUFIILIPE). MUFIILIPE is a two-year fellowship program that emphasizes development of leadership competencies for interprofessional practice (IPP). It provides opportunities for interaction with recognized leaders in IPP, collaboration with peers, and implementation of interprofessional projects. The fellowship includes two annual one-week residential sessions at Manipal University (MU) in Karnataka, India, and two 11-month online learning sessions following the residential sessions. Participants receive mentoring and support from experts, faculty, and fellows who will be connected throughout the program and beyond.

Representatives of MU and FAIMER gathered in Manipal on September 22, 2014, where Memoranda of Understanding were exchanged by FAIMER Associate Director for Regional Institutes Ralf Graves and MU Vice Chancellor Dr. K. Ramnarayan to mark the official launch of MUFIILIPE. Also in attendance were MU Pro Vice Chancellors Dr. Vinod Bhat and Dr. Surendra Shetty, MUFIILIPE Director Dr. Ciraj Ali Mohammed, and other local dignitaries.
