COPE Curriculum Innovation Challenge: Innovative Learning and Teaching
About Substance Use / Opioid Use Disorders 2.0

COPE invites submissions to the Curriculum Innovation Challenge: Innovative Learning and Teaching About Substance Use/ Opioid Use Disorders 2.0, in support of current initiatives of the American Academy of Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM). This Opioid Response Network-funded initiative intends to support teams of medical school faculty and medical student in integrating addiction medicine content into core clerkship rotations. This effort is designed to foster engagement and collaboration between addiction medicine experts, medical school faculty (clerkship directors or the equivalent), and medical students using cutting-edge concepts and training tools.

In the Curriculum Innovation Challenge 2.0, COPE will seek to support and empower faculty/student teams in integrating addiction medicine curricula in their school. Through a series of three virtual conferences, teams will be led in developing components of an addiction medicine curriculum and planning the subsequent implementation, all based on the needs of their school. Resources in goal setting, curriculum design, and other topics will be deployed in service of this project.

To be eligible to apply a faculty member must:

Preference will be given to those applications that demonstrate strong commitment to the process. In an effort to integrate addiction medicine into areas of clinical medicine where this topic is not currently addressed, will give preference to schools who do not have dedicated faculty support in addiction medicine.

Submission deadline: July 20, 2022, 11:59 PM Eastern Time
The 10-15 exemplary applications that fulfill the criteria will be announced in late July.
Virtual Collaborative Conferences in Fall, Winter and Spring will be scheduled according to participants’ preference
