This paper describes a multidisciplinary project of curriculum development and implementation at one university. Universal learning concepts for six health care disciplines in women's health, including nurse-midwifery, are being piloted in an online classroom environment. This multidisciplinary team approach to education distributes the work load, invites experts to share resources, and avoids the duplication of resources across the university departments and schools. This project provides midwifery faculty the opportunity to introduce a new educational paradigm and model the midwifery approach to holistic health care.
