Health professionals play an important role in preventing, treating and curing disease and in promoting health at the individual and societal levels. It is essential to ensure that those who train healthcare professionals create effective educational programmes that result in high quality health services.
The Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE) gives participants the knowledge and skills required for a career in health professions education and research. Students will receive a Master of Science degree in Health Professions Education.
The MHPE is a two-year, half-time programme taught in English. It is largely based on distance learning, with a maximum of three short periods in Maastricht.
You will be required to stay in Maastricht for at least two periods of three weeks. The first campus based Unit 1 at the beginning of the first year (25 May - 12 June, 2020) and the second campus based Unit 7 at the beginning of the second year (May 17-June 4, 2021). You are expected to present your Master Thesis and graduate at the end of the programme (June 2022).
he MHPE programme is firmly rooted in educational theory. Participants are required to continuously use theory-based insights in dealing with authentic educational problems. Most of the cases used in the programme are derived from the student’s own professional environment. Exploring the interrelationship between educational theory, research and educational practice is a fundamental part of the MHPE programme.
The Master of Health Professions Education attracts an international group of professionals from a variety of educational, professional and cultural backgrounds.
Who have acquired a university degree in one of the health professions in their native country (e.g.: health sciences, medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, dentistry, pharmacy, speech therapy.)
The international and inter-professional MHPE environment offers a rich learning environment at any point in your career. The MHPE is your next academic step towards a career as educational researcher and/or educational innovator. For junior health professionals: the best way to prepare for a combined career of clinical work and education. For those with some teaching experience: the way to prepare for a management position in health professions education. And for experienced health professions educators: the opportunity to have more impact on educational practice with a background in theory and research and a large, international network in health professions education and research.
