About

The Medical Education at University of Pittsburgh is designed to help academically oriented health care professionals enhance their education, strengthen their teaching skills, and expand their ability to facilitate the learning process of students and residents in a variety of clinical teaching environments.

Overview

About Medical Education at University of Pittsburgh

This program is typically completed over 2 years of part-time study. Alumni of this program have gone on to make valuable contributions to the field of medical education, many of them through leadership positions in top training programs across the country.

Trainees will gain a solid understanding of the theories and principles that form the foundation of medical education. These include strategies for teaching communication skills, the foundations of curriculum development and education design, adult learning theories, and principles of assessment.

Our courses are designed with the busy clinician schedule in mind. Instead of the traditional, 15-week-long graduate course, our courses are 1 or 2 months in duration. Additionally, several of our courses are now offered online and in a hybrid format. We strive to keep our programs practical, flexible, and convenient, while maintaining the rigor you’d expect from a renowned research university like the University of Pittsburgh.
