Do faculty members in the Graduate Programs in HPE conduct research in the context of undergraduate medical education (UME) only?

No. The research programs of the faculty in the HPE program are diverse and multidisciplinary. For example, we have faculty who research pre-medical education, undergraduate education in diverse health professions (e.g., medicine, nursing, allied health), postgraduate education (e.g., GME), continuing medical education (CME), as well research in patient safety and health care systems analysis.

We also have faculty who conduct research in,

  • instructional design,

  • curriculum design,

  • simulation-based learning, and

  • online learning.


We encourage you to look at our faculty pages to learn more about what types of research we conduct.
