Summary: The Maastricht University Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE) gives participants the knowledge and skills required for a career in health professions education and research. Description: The SHE Master of Health Professions Education is a highly accredited and ranked programme and strongly internationally and research-oriented.
“Become one of the educational leaders of the future with like-minded people from all over the world”


The first unit delineates the major issues in health professions education that are covered by the MHPE programme and introduces the students to the principles and theories of student centred learning and how these are related to educational design. Academic writing and critical reading are also included in this unit. But most importantly staff and students will be intensively interacting during this period and the basis for 2 years of collaborative learning will be laid here.


Topics involve
Year 1: Introduction in Health Professions Education, Learning and Cognition, Curriculum and Instruction, Assessment and Evaluation, Organisation and Leadership and Academic Research Skills I.

Year 2: Quantitative and Qualitative Research, Learning Environments, Advanced Assessments and Evaluation, Academic Research Skills II, Master Thesis, Advanced Quantitative and Qualitative Research
