What attracted you to the MHPE Program?

I believe that our approach to medical education and how we prepare trainees and practicing physicians for the needs of our society are critical areas for study and improvement. To be better equipped to contribute to this cause, I wanted to receive training through the MHPE program. Specifically, the competency-based approach and ability to integrate my MPHE project work into my current practice was appealing.
