Twelve Tips for Curriculum Sharing and Implementation: Dont Reinvent the Wheel uri icon


  • This article was migrated. The article was marked as recommended. In this era of decreased funding, academic health centers have found that sharing educational best practices is a responsible way to allocate resources as well as lead to new innovations and venues for scholarship. While much has been written about sharing these practices via large databases and public dissemination there is a paucity of information regarding externally imposed partnerships explicitly created to facilitate the sharing of curriculum. Two medical schools in Texas partnered in response to an NIH request for proposals that focused on curriculum sharing. This article details twelve tips learned from this five-year partnership and revolves around two best practices successfully shared, adapted, and then implemented. Practice one is a workshop that targets implicit bias in healthcare and how it impacts patient care. Practice two is a large scale, mass casualty simulation that capitalizes on interprofessional team delivery of health care. Don't reinvent the wheel; share instead.
