The BuckIPE curriculum is an integrated, longitudinal interprofessional (IP) curriculum for health professions programs at The Ohio State University, including the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Public Health, Social Work, and Veterinary Medicine. The curriculum is purposefully designed to be progressive; students advance across three levels: foundation, immersion, and mastery. In the foundation level, students learn rationale, supporting evidence, and foundational knowledge and skills for collaborative practice (IPCP). In the three foundation modules, students engage with community organizations, complete an Escape Room activity, and work together to develop a team care plan around a patient case to foster communication and principles of teamwork competence. In the immersion level, students participate in modules that provide immersive, authentic opportunities to learn and practice IPCP competencies. Immersion modules include team-based learning and simulation, as students consider topics around population health and anti-racism. In the mastery level, students integrate their IPCP skills into practice-based experiences with patients and community members. The curricular framework is centered on competency-based education, curricular integration with the participating programs including distance and on-campus learners, and affording students the opportunity to work in longitudinal IP teams. This lightning talk will describe the curricular framework, including the BuckIPE Competencies, Learning Outcomes, and Guiding Principles. Presenters will describe collaborative development that included input from faculty, administrators, and students and how the curriculum meets Health Professions Accreditors Collaborative Quality Standards. In AY2021-2022, more than 1,420 students across 20+ programs in eight colleges participated in the foundation level and more than 1,000 students from across seven colleges participated in the immersion level. Presenters will discuss how the curriculum is implemented and resourced. Assessment and evaluation data from the inaugural offering of our core modules will be shared, along with lessons learned and best practices for integration and resourcing.
