Abstract

Public health and interprofessional education (IPE) are included among the osteopathic core competencies and Entrustable Professional Activities that should be reflected in osteopathic medical curricula. Cognizant of the importance of these 2 areas, Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine-CA (TUCOM) has developed initiatives to advance them on campus as well as within its academic curriculum. The authors acknowledge the importance of incorporating public health content into osteopathic medicine as well as expanding IPE in the health professions as part of a larger project to impart a unique identity and relevance to osteopathic medical education at TUCOM. The authors describe TUCOM's public health and IPE initiatives and outcomes in the context of current and future relevance for osteopathic medicine. Future directions to assess the quality and impact of these programs that may be of value for other colleges of osteopathic medicine are also discussed.
