The Certificate in Health Professions Education is designed specifically for health professions educators - clinical instructors, faculty, and preceptors - who teach or who are interested in teaching in experiential and clinical lab settings.
Courses are designed specifically for faculty, future faculty, residents, and graduate students in the health sciences to accommodate demanding workloads and less flexible schedules. Similarly, fellows, residents, or professional students with a unique interest or need in health sciences education are often challenged to access more traditional training formats.
Each of the 12 courses is a one-hour graduate education experience. Ten of the 12 are offered in an asynchronous online format. All 12 classes must be completed successfully before a person can earn a Health Professions Education Certificate. Learners may select individual modules to complete for individual credits rather than completing the entire certificate program if they so desire.
