- The Competency Based Curriculum Project
The purpose of this project is to develop a contextually relevant competency based curriculum that prepares graduates with highly specified knowledge and skills to develop, implement and evaluate evidence based preventative services to medically and socially complex clients. This work will build upon the Advanced Gero-Competencies developed by the Council on Social Work Education and the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Practice developed by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative
- Integrating Transdisciplinary Education at Cornell Hunter (ITEACH)
The overall goal is to increase understanding of the values of the different professional identities and enhance collaborative behavior in order to improve the delivery of patient care. The aim is to create, pilot and refine an innovative transdisciplinary experiential educational program in simulated and clinical settings that: provides students from each of the participating health professions regularly scheduled “doses” of experiential learning in high quality health care team collaboration; and identifies opportunities to develop multi-level interventions that can address environmental influences on patient health and the health of communities.
