Healthcare professions educators, in addition to content expertise in clinical areas, must attain pedagogical and curriculum development skills absent from standard medical education training. The Certificate of Graduate Study in Enhancing Instructional Practices in Health Professions Education develops medical school faculty members and other health professionals as master educators and academic leaders. These professionals learn an array of clinical teaching strategies, as well as adult learning or andragogy, written and clinical assessment, curriculum/program development and management, and teaching and communicative proficiency. The certificate develops students' effectiveness in the field of health professions education, benefitting their students and, ultimately, patients and the healthcare system.
