The HMS MMSc-Medical Education is a two-year program with two primary goals:  

  • To give students a solid foundation in the theories and principles underpinning health professions education such as the science of learning, strategies of curriculum development and education design, adult learning theories, integration of education technology, and principles of assessment.
  • To provide students with comprehensive tools and protected time to engage in research on the most important issues in the field.  Our research objective includes empirical work and hypothesis testing using quantitative and qualitative analysis. 

The program is committed to flexibility in order to address participants' unique goals. Modifications to the recommended curriculum may be feasible.
