Health Professions Education: Scholarly Projects

As you begin the Master of Science in Health Professions Education program, you will identify an area of interest for your scholarly project. Throughout your study, you'll explore the issue in depth, develop a curriculum plan to address it, and capture what you've learned in a publication-ready manuscript, in lieu of a master's thesis. Here is a list of the rich and varied scholarly projects completed by graduates of our Health Professions Education program:
