Develop yourself

The two-year, part-time Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE) programme of SHE has a great reputation and has achieved an excellent position in global rankings together with its collaborating SHE Master’s programmes run in Canada, New York and Singapore.

Innovation is part of SHE’s DNA. We have revisited the MHPE curriculum in order to make the programme even stronger, more up-to-date and in keeping with current challenges in the field of HPE. Quality and innovation is what drives us, and our goal is to educate leaders in Health Professions Education that can really make a difference. We train our students to take on leading educational roles: by contributing to research, designing innovative education or by managing complex educational tasks.

For this reason, we have developed a new curriculum for you. We have listened to different key stakeholders (health professions educationalists, MHPE alumni and our partners in the field of HPE). We have researched their needs: what competencies do they require, now and in the future? Career perspectives in this field of practice demand knowledge, not only of the diversity of educational roles but also of the latest research in this domain. We have also looked at new insights and theories in the educational domain, so that we can ‘Practise what we preach’ and let you experience what we believe in. Learn more with this programme in Health Professions Education from Maastricht University.
