The MEHP program features:

Educational Research in the Health Professions
This option prepares health professionals to effectively create and engage in the research process beginning with the identification of research questions, the selection of sound methodological approaches including sample selection and instrument selection, the accurate interpretation of results, and the preparation of findings for dissemination through highly regarded journals.
Educational Leadership in the Health Professions
This option prepares health professionals to effectively lead educational initiatives through curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation; program advocacy; funding identification and support; staff management; program management; and educational policy development and/or implementation
Both tracks allow for some customization through electives, projects, and/or practicum. Under both options and in consultation with assigned instructor and mentor, participants will develop an educational research project or an educational leadership project with clear objectives and defined deliverables. The results of these projects will be prepared for publication and presentation. Participants are encouraged to use challenges and questions needing to be addressed in their work environments for these activities.
The 18-credit Post-Master’s Certificate in Evidence-Based Teaching in the Health Professions, with its emphasis on preparing health professionals to teach effectively, can be taken as a stand-alone program or as the first component of the Master of Education in the Health Professions. Applicants for the post-master’s certificate are required to hold an advanced degree (master’s or higher) in the health professions or in a related field.
