The 1/N expansion of the two-particle irreducible (2PI) effective action is employed to compute universal properties at the 2nd order phase transition of an O(N)-symmetric N-vector model directly in three-dimensions. At next-to-leading-order the approach cures the spurious small-N divergence of the standard (1PI) 1/N expansion for a computation of the critical anomalous dimension η(N), and leads to improved estimates already for moderate values of N.
