Specifically designed for the expert clinician who already teaches, the Master of Science in Health Professions Education (MSHPEd) program provides a unique context to study educational best practices in an interprofessional setting. Participants attend two weekend-long intensive seminars each year and complete the remainder of their courses online, with both full- and part-time options available.

The MGH Institute of Health Professions offers this program in collaboration with the Harvard Macy Institute and the Center for Medical Simulation. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with the next cohort starting this September. Visit the MSHPEd program page for additional details and to apply. Full-time Partners employees receive a tuition discount and should contact their Human Resources representative to see if additional vouchers are available.
