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

1. To give students a solid foundation in medical education, teaching skills, and the science of learning.

2. 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. 

We also ensure that, as a core part of the program, students will further their own skills as teachers. Graduates of MMSc-Medical Education should be master teachers themselves, even as they focus on advancing the field of medical education.
