Health Professions Education - Focus on Teaching and Leadership
(Anatomy lecture, Oxford 1890's http://www.ouls.ox.ac.uk/hcl)
The Health Professions Education track is designed for persons who are planning to teach or who currently teach in the health sciences or health professions. However, due to the strong emphasis on teaching methodologies, curriculum design and evaluation, this concentration of study is appropriate for those who teach, or wish to teach, in any environment. The Department of Health Sciences utilizes learning activities based on the functional requirements of adult learners to illustrate educational concepts and methodologies in varied settings. In addition to acquiring expertise in the principles of teaching and learning theory, program planning and evaluation, students are encouraged to develop educational research projects that benefit the academic endeavors in Health Science Education and support advances in patient care, community service, research and health professions education.
