‘Our research-based Certificate Courses are fully taught online; they help you to apply evidence-based educational strategies in your own work and provide an excellent preparation for our Master of Health Professions Education. We guide you on how to reach your goals and, at the same time, try to motivate you and help you with the online learning process. We wish to share our knowledge and are satisfied when you reap the rewards of it in your own work environment.
Certificate Courses offer students the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills related to major topics in health professions education. All three Certificate Courses are equivalent to specific sections of our Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE). This means that students who have obtained a certificate for one or more of these courses and later enrol in the MHPE may skip the corresponding sections of this programme. Thus, by taking individual Certificate Courses, you can get a taste of our MHPE programme at the same time’.
The Certificate Course Curriculum Instruction includes the following themes:
Course coordinator: Maryam Asoodar, PhD
The Certificate Course Organization and Leadership includes the following themes:
Course coordinator: Mohammed Meziani, MSc
The Certificate Courses are designed for you if you have already obtained a bachelor's or master's degree and wish to deepen your insight into the course topics, but prefer not to complete the entire research-based MHPE programme (or not yet). The Certificate Courses are geared towards participants who work in the field of medical education and have expertise in teaching, such as:
The Certificate Courses offer an attractive opportunity to enrol in the MHPE programme via an alternative pathway. More specifically, by taking one or more Certificate Courses, you can be exempted from the equivalent sections of the Maastricht University MHPE programme.
This exemption affords students the opportunity to enrol in our MHPE programme at Maastricht University within two years. To be exempted from a section of the MHPE programme, the Certificate Courses must have been successfully completed.*
* The two Certificate Courses correspond to equivalent sections of the MHPE programme. For each section that you have already successfully completed by taking a Certificate Course, you will receive a discount, provided you are admitted to the MHPE programme.
