Curriculum in IDD Healthcare

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have a number of unique health challenges that practicing physicians and other healthcare professionals are sometimes unprepared to address. WCUCOM is proud to be the first medical school to incorporate the Curriculum in IDD Healthcare into required training for all first year students.   

The Curriculum in IDD Healthcare was created and delivered by a physician for physicians and other clinicians to serve as a comprehensive IDD training curriculum. The curriculum’s six e-Learn modules provide physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and physician assistants with pertinent, practical information that can be put to use immediately in their practices to improve outcomes for those with an intellectual development disorder and/or intellectual disability characteristics.
