Our Programs

Master of Health Professions Education Program

The Master of Health Professions Education program will provide health professionals a focused program addressing the diverse teaching needs within the clinical or health related setting. Specifically, the program targets individuals employed in the health professions sector filling a gap between clinical knowledge and teaching skills, and/or residents/allied health students seeking a position at an academic setting.

The MHPE program is cohort-based with 8 blended courses which allows health-care professionals the flexibility to continue working to meet their professional obligations. The first and fifth courses will be offered during a one-week summer intensive, 5 courses will be offered completely online, and the final course, a Capstone Experience, will be designed to meet individual needs.

This interdisciplinary degree is jointly developed and designed by clinical faculty members and pedagogical experts which ensures a diversity of experiences and expertise.  This graduate degree program fulfills a niche that is not currently met in Canada as there are no other programs available to the health education community (e.g., doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nutritionists, dentists, veterinarians, etc.) that are both course-based and competency-based.


Who Should Apply:

Individuals who are current practicing health professionals (dentists, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, physicians, pharmacists and other allied health roles) and individuals in the final stages of their training (i.e., residency) or seeking a position within an academic setting would be interested in our program.

Important Dates:

  • Application period for the 2022 Cohort opens Fall 2021
  • Program Dates for 2021 Cohort – September 2021 - August 2023

One of the exciting features of this new program is that each course will be designed & taught by a teaching team comprised of both clinical & educational experts  Denise Stockley, PhD Professor and Scholar in Higher Education Co-Director, Master of Health Professions Education
