The 18-credit Post–Master’s Certificate in Evidence-Based Teaching in the Health Professions programs is offered through a partnership among five JHU schools: Education, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and Business. The goal of certificate program is to develop interprofessional leaders and change agents who will globally transform health professions education.
The program consists of interprofessional educational experiences designed and delivered by faculty teams from the five partner schools. MEHP Fellows are provided opportunities to engage in deep discussions, team projects, and group presentations in an interactive online community. The course schedule and online format is designed to complement the lives of busy health professionals who want to advance their competence as educators.
This program is designed to serve accomplished health professionals with advanced degrees in medicine, nursing, public health, pharmacy, dentistry, and other allied health fields. The curriculum prepares participants (MEHP Fellows) to become effective educators, educational leaders, and educational researchers. Applicants are required to hold an advanced degree (terminal degree preferred) in a health professions related field. All courses are offered in an online format. MEHP Fellows can complete the post-master’s certificate within one-to-two years, depending on whether they complete one or two courses per semester.
The emphasis of the certificate is on preparing health professionals to teach effectively. Participants examine learning theories, adult learning and development theories, hypotheses-driven education-based practice, curriculum development, assessment and feedback, instructional strategies, cultural competence, technology integration, and educational scholarship. MEHP Fellows create an educational philosophy to guide their work, a curriculum development project, and an agenda for their educational scholarship.
