The purpose of the Graduate Program in Education for Healthcare Professionals (EDHP) is to provide the training necessary to produce effective leaders in health professions education. Accordingly, the program recruits health professionals who have, or are preparing for, educational leadership positions but who lack formal training in education and/or leadership.

This program will provide the opportunity for individuals to develop the background and skills necessary to be excellent teachers in their areas of specialty and conduct research to improve and develop innovative educational programs in health professions education. The interdisciplinary Master of Science degree will provide greater access to faculty and students, as well as clinicians and healthcare professionals, who have an interest in academia. Multiple online courses and an interprofessional approach makes the M.S. degree unique. Graduates of the program help satisfy the need for qualified teaching faculty in medicine, nursing, dental and dental hygiene schools across the country.
In addition to the M.S. degree, the Graduate Program in Education of Healthcare Professionals also offers a Certificate program for students who may wish to expand their knowledge of teaching and curriculum development. The Certificate program is an intermediary step within the EDHP program and can be applied to the M.S. if a student wishes to pursue the advanced degree in the future.
