Flexible, Part-Time Format

Blended instruction balances the flexibility of distant learning with onsite opportunities to develop a community of interest with like-minded scholars. Your courses are largely project-based so that you can advance your skills and apply the information you are learning as you learn it. 

Lead Change

You will improve your ability to recognize opportunities for innovation and build the skills to facilitate and lead change in health professions education—enhanced by engaging in interactive study with an interprofessional, international community of colleagues.

"The most valuable thing I got out of the Health Professions Education program at the MGH Institute was interprofessional education … I credit the IHP with starting me thinking about this in a systematic manner. Overall, a life-changing degree—and I really mean that! Would I do it again? ABSOLUTELY!"
