December 6, 2011 at 2:36 am Leave a comment

The Evidence-Based Program in Health Professions Education, in collaboration with the Department of Lifelong Education, Administration, and Policy, has developed an online master’s degree in adult education with an emphasis on health professions education. It brings together courses from the College of Public Health and the College of Education. This program is specifically designed to meet the needs of working professionals who are unable to attend classes in the traditional university setting.

The Master of Adult Education degree with an emphasis in Health Professions Education is designed for healthcare professionals engaged in teaching their colleagues. This includes faculty in medical residency programs, medical, nursing, and veterinary school faculty, and educators in other healthcare settings.

With eLearning Commons (eLC – UGA’s course management system), e-mail, and other telecommunication methods, classes are conducted with the same high degree of instruction as found in traditional classrooms. With the use of technology, this program is delivered to the students’ computers allowing them to study and learn at a time and at the pace that is right for them. The program will admit 15-20 students in each cycle. Courses in the online program are not eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). Courses are not available to non-degree seeking students.

The requirements for the degree of Master of Adult Education are met by the completion of an approved program of a minimum of 33 hours (11 courses) of graduate coursework. In addition, students must prepare a M.Ed. Student Portfolio and complete a final oral exam.
