"The interprofessional nature of the MSPC program mimics the reality of healthcare practice. The intensive communication lab
experience gave me the tools and confidence for successful patient and family interactions, even under the most challenging circumstances. This training absolutely transformed my practice."

- Kacey Boyle, MSPC, BSN, RN, CHPN, University of Vermont Medical Center
