Welcome to the Health Science Education or HSED Program at McMaster University. We offer master's level graduate training to working health professionals who are seeking improved skills in clinical teaching and learning and/or professional development for leadership in academic clinical education contexts. There's also opportunities in our program for students who are not health professionals to pursue thesis research pertaining to health professions education. Our curriculum engages students in courses on curriculum design, assessment, leadership, education technology, simulation-based learning, program evaluation, and critical perspectives on pedagogy and scholarship.
We offer a dynamic community of learning, a seminar series featuring world-class researchers and education thought leaders, and a variety of self-directed program completion streams that afford our students the opportunity to develop academic pathways tailored to their learning and professional goals. This website is a great place to find out more about our program, and for our current students and faculty, information about upcoming events, program requirements, announcements, and accomplishments of your colleagues. I hope you find what you're looking for. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or to express interest in scholarship in health professional education.
