Program Information

The Certificate in Health Professions Education (CHPE) is offered through a partnership between the College of Education and Human Development and the School of Medicine. The program is designed for specifically for faculty, future faculty, residents and graduate students in the health sciences including medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health, clinical and allied health professions. The program includes four graduate-level credit courses (12 total credit hours), and the Certificate is an academic credential offered through the UofL School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies.

All courses are part of the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) graduate curriculum and may be applied to other degree programs such as a Masters degree. Each course is grounded on the plan for the corresponding course taught in the CEHD but is focused primarily for healthcare educators. For example, instructional techniques include working not only in the classroom, but also at the bedside, and in the clinic. Class projects are designed for the healthcare environment.

Program courses follow the Belknap Campus semester schedule, but meet on the Health Sciences Campus. Courses are taught in the evening and are web-enhanced with approximately 1/3 of weekly work assignments completed online. Students enrolled in other education degree programs may substitute a more advanced statistics course for ELFH 600, if they prefer.Students enrolled in other education degree programs may substitute a more advanced statistics course for the ELFH 600, if they wish to do so.
