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.
