Why did you choose the U-M MHPE Program?
I was looking for a Masters program that would have actual direct benefit to my career and that would be immediately applicable. The U-M MHPE program is perfect in this regard since the learner chooses which projects are relevant to his/her career and is able to apply the projects to his/her job immediately.
What do you want to get out of the U-M MHPE Program?
I hope to gain the knowledge necessary to be a better medical education researcher, peer reviewer, and educator in general. I hope to understand the learning theories underpinning medical education and to apply these theories to improve the education of my learners.
