AADMD's National Curriculum Initiative in Developmental Medicine

Abstract


People with intellectual and developmental disabilities have benefited significantly from the medical advances of the last century. While the life expectancy of the general population has increased by around 30 percent over the past 80 years, the life expectancy of people with intellectual disabilities has increased by 200 percent. Once relegated only to discussions of pediatric medicine, intellectual and developmental disabilities are becoming increasingly more prevalent in the adult patient population. In fact, for the first time in the course of human history, there are now more adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities than children.

Unfortunately, despite their longer life expectancies, people with ID/DD experience significant disparities in the quality of healthcare that they receive. As a result they are kept in poorer health and can be expected to die at a younger age than their non-disabled cohort. Though there are many factors contributing to this, lack of a physician training is frequently cited as one of the most pervasive. The fact that most medical students and medical residents will never receive adequate training to treat this patient population is a direct result of the lack of focus that medical schools and residency programs have in their curricula regarding patients with ID/DD.
