This new program, which launched in April 2013, offers health professions educators the opportunity to earn a Certificate, Diploma, or Master’s Degree in Health Professions Education: Accreditation and Assessment. The program is conducted in partnership with Keele University and the Centre for Medical Education in Context (CenMEDIC) in the United Kingdom.
The one-year Certificate program and two-year Diploma program are conducted as fully supported distance learning using downloaded modules, podcasts, library work, and moderated discussion forums. The three-year Master’s Degree program also includes a brief residential session and a dissertation.
The deadline is approaching to apply for FAIMER funding to present at the November 2013 Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH) conference!
Many education innovation projects in health professions institutions are implemented, but only some result in significant, sustained change. A new highlight of the 2013 Network: TUFH conference in Thailand will feature “Projects That Work” – that is, projects that have survived beyond initial implementation and have had a significant positive impact on health, the community, or the school over three or more years. A plenary panel during the conference will provide representatives of a few outstanding examples of such projects with an opportunity to tell their stories so that others can learn from their success. Projects that exemplify the conference theme of “Rural and Community Based Healthcare” will be of particular interest.
FAIMER will sponsor a representative of up to five selected projects to attend the Network: TUFH conference, to be held November 16-20, 2013, in Ayutthaya, Thailand. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee. Applications must be submitted by May 15, 2013. To apply click here.
