Health Professional Education
The Master of Education (Health Professional Education) aims to equip those who have educational responsibilities in the health professions, with knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education.
Students will emerge with a deeper understanding of contemporary, internationally recognised educational pedagogies and practices that underpin teaching and learning in the health professions.
This course will be delivered collaboratively by staff in Sydney Nursing and Medical school, as well as the faculties of Health Sciences, and Education and Social Work.
The MEd (Health Professional Education) degree will be offered in a blended learning mode with face-to-face and online components. Some on-campus attendance will be required for most units of study, although exceptions to this may be found among the course's elective units of study.
Information about the entry requirements, tuition fees and opportunities for further study associated with all Master of Education designations and their component graduate certificates and graduate diplomas is published on the MEd home page.
Completing four units of study from the list of five core units comprises the graduate certificate; completing all five core units as well as one elective unit constitutes a graduate diploma; and successfully completing the five core units plus three elective units is required for the award of a Master of Education (Health Professional Education).
