Medical Education Opportunities

Faculty development works best if it is an integrated learning approach with multiple choices and options that fit the needs of faculty.  We are building an approach to Medical Education that includes  opportunities for growth at the  USask including nationally recognized teaching certificates, other certificate programs and a masters in education focused on health professions education.  Current options are listed at the Gwenna Moss site.  International options for doing a Masters Programs in Health Professions Education are listed at the FAIMIR (Foundation for the Advancement of International Medical Education and Research. https://www.faimer.org/resources/mastersmeded.html
