MEHP Students at work

The 18-credit Post-Master's Certificate in Evidence-Based Teaching in the Health Professions, with its emphasis on preparing health professionals to teach effectively, can be taken as a stand-alone program or as the first component of the Master of Education in the Health Professions. Applicants for the post-master's certificate are required to hold an advanced degree (master's or higher) in the health professions or in a related field.

The six certificate courses include:

  • Foundation to Innovation: Adult Learning
  • Evidence-Based Teaching
  • Ensuring Learning through Assessment and Feedback
  • Curriculum Development
  • Instructional Strategies I (1.5 credits)
  • Instructional Strategies II (1.5 credits)
  • Educational Scholarship: Design (1.5 credits)
  • Educational Scholarship: Implementation (1.5 credits)

Students who complete the certificate can go on to complete the Master of Education in the Health Professions degree by selecting one of the two specialization options: Educational Research in the Health Professions or Educational Leadership in the Health Professions. Visit our course sequence/descriptions page for more information on the courses required for both the certificate and full Master's degree.

Gainful Employment Disclosure

In accordance with US Department of Education regulations, the JHU School of Education is required to disclose graduation rate data, median loan debt data, and other select information for all Title IV eligible gainful employment (GE) programs. To see the most recent data available for this GE program, please view the attached disclosure.

Note: Fewer than 10 students graduated from this program in the 2013-14 academic year. Therefore, in accordance with US Department of Education guidelines on student privacy, the on-time completion rate and median loan debt data are not published.  The restrictions imposed by the current US Department of Education online disclosure form limit the number of jobs related to this program that can be displayed in this disclosure: the job(s) listed here represent only a sample of the jobs related to the program. The program costs reported reflect the tuition rate for non-JHU employees and are calculated based on the tuition and fees in effect for the 2014-15 academic year.

Note: We currently are not accepting applications to the online Post-Master's Certificate in Evidence-Based Teaching in the Health Professions program from prospective online students who reside in Arkansas and Kansas. In addition, current and prospective online students should be aware of other state specific policies and disclosures in effect for all JHU distance education programs, which are detailed on the university's State Authorization of Distance Education web page.
