Masters in Medical Education

The Masters in Medical Education (MME) is a competitive, 30 semester-hour program coordinated through the Office of Consultation and Research in Medical Education at the Carver College of Medicine. Learners enrolled in the masters program take seven core courses covering topics including educational measurement in medical education, current issues in medical education, instructional design and technology, teaching methods, clinical teaching, assessment in medical education and educational research and evaluation as well as electives. In addition to coursework, the participant develops a summative portfolio project.

During residency, residents have the opportunity to complete coursework in the MME program and work towards earing a certificate (Medical Education, Graduate Certificate). This coursework will contribute to a Masters of Medical Education if a resident chooses to pursue further studies.  The residency will cover the cost of these classes while the student is a resident.

The Masters in Medical Education (MME) program provides residents, fellows and staff the opportunity to develop teaching skills specific to medical education. Guided by the faculty in the Office of Consultation and Research in Medical Education (OCRME), the curriculum introduces learners to different areas of evidence-based assessment and educational principles, and invites participants to contribute to this growing area of research while allowing them to complete a strong portfolio. Classes are physician schedule-friendly with online options or weekly seminars after 5:30 pm. The program timeline is flexible and highly supported by the department of Internal Medicine. I highly recommend this opportunity to any healthcare provider interested in utilizing medical education as a part of his/her career.
