inNOVAtions Curriculum Innovation and Development Benefits: To create a better student “product” Efficiency Student buy into their education Alumni satisfaction Student understanding of interdisciplinary relationships Earlier clinic time = more clinical experience Providing care to the most vulnerable
inNOVAtions Curriculum Innovation and Development Challenges: Implementation. Paradigm shift/ philosophy / buy in/turf wars/power struggles. Concurrence as to what is the ideal curriculum. Convincing faculty and students that end results will be beneficial.
inNOVAtions CID: Goal 1 To establish a vertically integrated, interdisciplinary education model that graduates dental professionals who are well-qualified to practice general dentistry in the 21st century. Objectives: Identify the essential academic and clinical knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to be competent as a general dentist, including those inherent for success in conducting scientific research, employing critical thinking, and arriving at appropriate diagnoses. Develop interdisciplinary courses that integrate the essential basic and clinical sciences to be a competent general dentist assuring application of biological sciences to dentistry. Identify existing courses and program within NSU/HPD that can provide the academic and clinical foundation knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to meet the evolving and expanding role of the dental practitioner as part of an integrated health care team. Develop a formal and ongoing outcome assessment process to measure student’s achievement
inNOVAtions CID: Goal 2 To develop an educational model that provides direct clinical patient care early in the curriculum. Objectives: Identify the essential academic and clinical knowledge and skills needed to begin direct clinical patient care. Sequence interdisciplinary and pre-clinical courses to assure students have the academic and clinical foundation knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to Begin direct clinical patient care early in the curriculum.
inNOVAtions CID: Goal 3 To develop an educational model that graduates dental professionals who are culturally sensitive to the underserved and special needs populations, and recognizes the importance of community service.
