Curriculum Plan - CAS in Health Professions Education

Health Professions Education Certificate Options

There are two non-degree certificate options available:

Curriculum Plan - Certificate of Completion: 9 credits

This three-course sequence addresses basic concepts of teaching and learning, course design, student assessment, and teaching practicum. No program application is needed to register for courses, and there is no formal matriculation. Contact the Health Professions Education Program for questions, and to register. Courses are to be taken in sequence.

Learners will receive a Certificate of Completion at the successful completion of these courses. Participants interested in continuing for the Certificate of Advanced Studies may apply for non-degree admission (see below).

Both concentrations, Academic and Simulation-based Learning, are offered for the Certificate of Completion.

This option satisfies the National League for Nurses' three-course eligibility requirement to sit for the Certified Nurse Educator Examination.

Current Curriculum Plan - Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS): 15 credits

This academic credential includes the curriculum from the 9-credit certificate and extends into areas of program evaluation and administration. A separate application is required for admission and matriculation into this option. See the CAS application process for admission requirements.

Course of Study

The CAS-HPEd is a comprehensive graduate certificate for the management of courses and programs.  Instructors and program coordinators will gain skills in designing, managing, and evaluating individual learning experiences and in working with curricula and professional accreditation standards.

While the HPEd courses are explicitly interprofessional and not profession specific, each student will complete projects that are meaningful within their own professional context.  As a post-professional program, students will get to know a diverse group of clinician-educators who share a passion for designing and evaluating innovative and effective learning experiences.  Those interested in gaining additional leadership and research skills are encouraged to consider the Master of Science in Health Professions Education (MS-HPEd) program.

Additional opportunities to join a cohort that meets face to face periodically are available: please inquire with the program.
