We designed and implemented a collaborative immersion in Ethiopia as a service learning experience for a team of interprofessional (IP) learners. The IP team of four dental students, one dental faculty, nine medical students, two medical student leaders, and one global health faculty fully experienced this immersion. The setting was in rural Ethiopia, and the immersive experience included ecological accommodations by the Common River Non-Governmental Organization (CR-NGO).1.
