FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does the Evidence-Based Certificate program differ from the full MEHP degree program?

All MEHP Fellows take the same 18-credits of foundation courses which provide a sound foundation in learning theory, adult and developmental theory, evidence-based teaching, assessment and feedback, instructional strategies, curriculum development, and educational scholarship as its core. Upon completion of the foundation courses, MEHP Fellows may opt to graduate with the Evidence-Based Certificate or continue their studies toward the full MEHP degree.

Is there a requirement to come to the JHU campus in Baltimore?

There is no part of the curriculum that requires traveling to the campus in Baltimore. There is, however, a biennial MEHP Conference during which MEHP Fellows, faculty, alumni, and friends gather in Baltimore to share research, engage in leadership development workshops, and network.

What guidance is available to participants in the program?

An online, asynchronous orientation (with some real-time synchronous sessions for answering questions) is held from mid-July through late August for new MEHP fellows.

The MEHP provides a general adviser at the beginning of the program to provide informal support and to answer typical questions.

Faculty members provide advising support throughout the program.

Three librarians from the Hopkins medical campus and the academic campus work as an interprofessional team to support research needs and provide training on library tools.

For Fellows completing the full MEHP degree, a Capstone instructor is assigned to each fellow to guide the development and execution of the Capstone project.

Technology support is available to resolve technology issues related to the course platform.

How do candidates use this degree once it is completed?

MEHP Fellows enter this program to gain a strong background in educational theory and practice. This program positions them to advance their educational scholarship, secure grant funding, build curriculum, prepare for promotion, publish, and/or advance educational programs. Many find that the MEHP catapults them into educational leadership positions within their institutions or makes them highly desirable candidates for new educational leadership positions.
