Debre Tabor University (DTU) take itself a lofty mission of the “Historical duty to answer Emperor Tewodros’s quest for knowledge” by putting quality and problem-solving education at the center stage. In line with this mission, College of Health Sciences (CHS) was established in 2013 with three departments, namely; Anesthesia, Medicine and Midwifery. In keeping with its mission to provide quality education, the college has developed an “innovative curriculum” for undergraduate medical midwifery and nursing specialty programs, in collaboration with Jhpiego Ethiopia, which can produce medical doctors and midwives with leadership, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. This “Hybrid innovative curriculum” was built on strengths of the traditional curriculum and incorporating innovative and transformative features highlighted in the SPICES model (student-centered, problem-based, integrated, community-based, elective, and systematic) and other global recommendations on instructional designs. With its significant achievement in implementing the innovative curriculum; the college is now moving towards making Anesthesia, Medical Laboratory Science and Generic nursing curricula to be innovative. The innovative curriculum has its own educational strategies for effective implementation; Alignment (learning hierarchy, domain of education, learning outcomes, teaching and assessment methods), Student-centered, Problem based learning (PBL), Integration (vertically and horizontally), Team-teaching, Community based education, Planned and practice based learning and Whole group session (students-faculty discussion). For effective implementation of the curriculum, the college assigned coordinators for each arms of the curriculum (Biomedical, Clinical and SPH). The rough design of the hybrid innovative curriculum is shown below.
