Rationale

Professionals who are recruited as faculty members in the colleges of medicine, dentistry, nursing and other health professions have usually established their positions as practitioners in their respective fields. In most instances, these faculty members have had no formal training in the theory and practice of teaching and learning.

The Master in Health Professions Education (MHPEd) is offered by the Davao Medical School Foundation, Inc. to help the faculty members of health professions acquire the strategies and tactics associated with the science of instruction to become competent teachers.

Although guided by the same principles as that in the Master in Teaching or the Master in Education programs, the MHPEd is unique in its application. This program is patterned after the MHPEd program of the National Teacher Training Center for the Health Professions of the University of the Philippines which was established in part by the Regional Teacher Training Center of the University of New South Wales, Australia.

General Program Objectives

N

To provide qualified health professionals with an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of educational practice;

N

To build on these theoretical foundations and introduce the students to the strategies most likely to be appropriate for teaching in the health professions;

N

To enable students to practice, under supervision, the teaching skills they have.

N

To expose participants to effective means of evaluating student learning; and,

N

To enable participants to understand the administrative functions in a health profession education institution.
