New Interprofessional Curriculum Launched 

Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine (OUWB) and University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry (Detroit Mercy) will offer a new interprofessional course designed to educate second-year dental and medical students about how health care professionals can collaborate to obtain better outcomes for their patients.

The new March 2019 course offering will have Detroit Mercy dental students work with medical students at OUWB’s Clinical Skills Center in Beaumont Hospital. Sessions include pain management communication, intimate partner violence, and delivering bad news. Medical and dental students will deliver news of oral cancer diagnosis to standardized patients, with faculty facilitating the interaction.

This course intends to teach students how to effectively communicate with patients and members of the extended health care team to foster a team-based approach.
