The Penn MedEd Master's Program will begin accepting applications for Fall 2018 beginning September 1, 2017. Priority Deadline February 15, 2018, Final Deadline June 15, 2018.
The Med Ed masters program is specifically designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals who have, or are interested in pursuing, positions in educational leadership, such as program directors, fellowship directors, clerkship directors, or those with responsibilities in undergraduate or graduate medical education or faculty development. In addition, the program is designed to equip those healthcare professionals with interest in a specific facet of medical education, such as simulation, research and scholarship, program evaluation, learner assessment, or leading learning efforts in complex systems. The program strongly emphasizes equipping graduates to serve as leaders and resources within their institutions.
The integration of education and workplace demands is central to the design of the Med Ed program. The executive format allows participants from around the country to continue their full-time positions while completing course work. The on-site intensive learning periods are mandatory, but they are scheduled for only two long weekends over the course of each four-month block. The synchronous on-line classes vary by block and are scheduled periodically to accommodate students’ work demands (usually monthly). The independent project/assignment for each block is centered on a “real-life” project that participants self-identify in their workplace.
