Partially online concentration
The Master's in Human Resources and Organization Development with a concentration in Health Professions Education (HPE) educates professionals who lead performance, development, and learning in healthcare settings through discovery and critical inquiry. Through the program, you can develop skills by exploring cutting-edge concepts and designing hands-on and research-based projects related to:
- Clinical Education
- Continuing Education
- Professional Development
- Performance Improvement
- Leadership Development
The HPE master's program is offered partially online through an innovative partnership between the College of Education and Human Development and the School of Medicine. The program is designed for those involved in education, learning, and performance improvement in health care settings. The program includes faculty, future faculty, residents, trainers, clinical educators, and graduate students in health sciences fields such as medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health, clinical and allied health professions.
In all of your courses, you will conduct projects for the health care environment. Four of the eleven courses are specifically designed for the Health Professions Education program. In these HPE-specific courses, the readings and class projects are oriented toward health care contexts. For example, instructional techniques in healthcare include teaching at the bedside and in clinical settings. Specific theories and techniques are needed for such environments.
This concentration is offered partially online (four face-to-face course are required).
