Certificate in Innovative Teaching

The online Certificate in Innovative Teaching in Healthcare Education is to provide opportunities for participants to gain conceptual knowledge and skills needed to serve as outstanding teachers and effective leaders in healthcare education. Many healthcare professionals have focused their careers on becoming experts in their chosen fields of study, not necessarily on how to teach in their area of expertise. However, we ask these scientists and healthcare professionals to teach and to do so well, without the benefit of sufficient instruction or support in effective teaching methods. The way healthcare professionals have been educated has changed very little in the past 100 years despite the dramatic changes in the world of healthcare. These rapid changes in the science of healthcare and the need for future practitioners to remain competent as the healthcare environment evolves is a major challenge this Certificate aims to resolve. This Certificate will prepare healthcare professionals to teach so that today's healthcare student will learn in meaningful and integrated ways.
