Certificate in Health Professions Education


The Certificate in Health Professions Education awarded by the UofL Graduate School, includes four graduate-level credit courses for a total of 12 credit hours. The program is tailored specifically to meet the needs of educators and/or future educators in the health sciences. Tuition remission applies to all full-time UofL employees.

  • All courses are part of the College of Education graduate curriculum, and may be applied to other degree programs such as a Master of Education. Courses are graded rather than pass/fail.
  • All courses are taught in the evening and are web enhanced with approximately 1/3 of weekly work completed online using the Blackboard ® course management system.
  • In the event that course numbers change, students in the cohort will be advised before the enrollment for the coming semester.
