We are pleased to announce a second batch of 2018 graduates of the FAIMER-Keele Master’s in Health Professions Education: Accreditation and Assessment program! After completing a residential session at Keele University in February 2018, the Master’s students spent the next six months finishing their dissertations under the supervision of their advisors. Each dissertation was also reviewed by an independent marker, and the Keele University Examination Board met to review the results of the students’ efforts in mid-November.
The December 2018 graduates of the FAIMER-Keele Master’s program are:
Dr. Eman Asaad Ismail Ali, Egypt
Dr. Amol Dongre, India
Dr. Nadia El Asmar, Lebanon
Dr. Mobeen Iqbal, Pakistan
Dr. Homa Kabiri, Afghanistan
Krystina McNeil, United States
Salem Silvey, United States
Four of the November 2018 graduates passed with distinction, and two passed with merit. Course Director Professor Janet Grant shares that she was especially delighted to have two midwives in this cohort, in addition to the doctors.
Two members of the November 2018 graduating class are FAIMER International Fellowship in Medical Education (IFME) Fellows, alumni of the FAIMER Institute or Regional Institute fellowship programs who received sponsorship through FAIMER to participate in the program. IFME Fellows Amol Dongre and Mobeen Iqbal passed with merit and distinction, respectively.
Participants in the FAIMER-Keele program are able to earn a Certificate, Diploma, or Master’s Degree in Health Professions Education: Accreditation and Assessment. The program aims to empower health professions educators with the knowledge and skills to take educational standards and practice to a higher level—to develop their own practice, to improve health professions education at their institutions and in their communities, and ultimately to help bring about real and lasting advances in local health care.
Applications for the FAIMER-Keele Distance Learning program are currently closed. The 2019 application will open in early 2019, and course work will start on September 23, 2019.
