Interprofessional Curriculum and Learning Opportunities
The University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine curriculum supports student achievement of the competencies necessary for collaborative practice that improves health outcomes while reducing costs and increasing patient satisfaction and provider well-being.
In addition to required curriculum, UNE COM partners with three University entities that offer additional interprofessional learning opportunities:
- The Center for Excellence in Aging and Health (CEAH) priorities for research are defined by seven pillars — Identities, Functions, Transitions, Generations, Practices, Economics, and Environments. The Center consults with faculty, professional staff, and students to pursue meaningful applied projects linking these pillars.
- The Center for Excellence in Collaborative Education (CECE) offers on-campus events, student mini-grants, and a plethora of learning opportunities such as the Interprofessional Team Immersion (IPTI). CECE also supports the Interprofessional Education Honors Distinction.
- The Center for Excellence in Public Health focuses on interprofessional education in clinical settings. The center sponsors the Care for the Underserved Pathways AHEC Scholars Program and an array of interprofessional and research opportunities.
