Online Graduate Programs in Health Professions Education


The online Graduate Programs in Health Professions Education (HPE) are specifically designed to prepare health professionals for careers in health professions education. The Graduate Programs offer the opportunity to earn either a Master of Science in Health Sciences (31 credits) or a Graduate Certificate in Health Professions Education (13 credits). Regardless of the setting or mode of instruction, teaching health professionals requires a special set of knowledge and skills.


Program Design/Teaching Portfolio


ePortfolio Repository

The Masters program and Graduate Certificate are uniquely designed to blend online courses with competency based education. Threaded throughout the health professions educations curriculum is the requirement to build an individualized Teaching Portfolio which includes a major graded project from each course. Each teaching portfolio project is integrated into a final cumulative Teaching Portfolio. Course content and documentation of achievement of specific health professions education competencies are used to build the Portfolio.
To facilitate development of the Teaching Portfolio, each student is provided with their own ePortfolio Repository. At the completion of each course, students will upload the related segment of their portfolio into the ePortfolio Repository where each section of the Portfolio will remain with the student until completion of the Degree or Certificate. Attainment and documentation of the following competencies form the foundation of the individualized Teaching Portfolio.
