In Memory of Dr. DeWitt C. “Bud” Baldwin

It is with a sad heart that CAIPE mourns the passing of an IPE legend Dr DeWitt C. ‘Bud’ Baldwin aged 99 on 5th January 2022. Bud was a pioneer of the interprofessional teamwork movement and highly regarded for his research around medical resident and fellow burnout and well-being, and his significant contributions to medicine.

Dr. Barbara F. Brandt reflects “It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of the passing of Dr. DeWitt C. “Bud” Baldwin at the age of 99 yesterday, January 5, 2022.

Bud was an IPE pioneer and a medical education legend. He was a dear mentor from whom I learned a great deal not only about IPE but also about joie de vivre and living a full personal and professional life until the end.

Bud, with John Gilbert and Mattie Schmitt, saw something in me that I could not, pushing me to step up to the plate that eventually led to the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education at the University of Minnesota. Throughout the years, Bud never wavered in supporting me. Bud d retired a couple of years ago from the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  From the whole National Center team, our thoughts are with Bud’s wonderful wife, Michele, and his family.”
