The Certificate in Teaching in the Healthcare Professions Program is designed for veterinary and healthcare educators/professionals who seek additional preparation for educator roles in academia and health care organizations. The common core of course work includes work in curriculum development, instruction, student assessment, program evaluation, education leadership, and education scholarship. Students enrolled in the certificate courses will gain in-depth knowledge in the areas of organizational leadership, research methodology, curriculum development, instructional methods and learning theory, student performance assessment, program and faculty evaluation, and faculty development. Participants will also complete a capstone project, defined as a work of scholarship, which will allow application of knowledge and skills gained in coursework.
The program will be completed entirely online. This format allows professionals to pursue the certificate while keeping full-time jobs. Certificate in Teaching in the Healthcare Professions Program candidates are encouraged to use their home institution as a laboratory for the application of practical educational and leadership concepts and for development of their own scholarship.
