Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE)

University of Illinois at Chicago

The interprofessional Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE) program offered by the Department of Medical Education of the University of Illinois at Chicago, long a gold standard for such programs, is designed for health professionals who want to prepare themselves for roles as educational leaders and scholars. Application deadline is December 1st 2020.

MHPE students participate in rigorous core courses that address topics including curriculum development, instruction, student assessment, program evaluation, scholarship in HPE, and leadership and organizations.  A thesis capstone provides mentored experience in integrating and applying course material in the context of a publishable work of scholarship. MHPE candidates are encouraged to use their home institution as a laboratory for the application of practical education and leadership concepts.

The 32-credit program can be completed either on campus, during intensive summer sessions, or online in a semester-long format.  Both formats allow professionals to pursue their degrees while keeping full-time jobs.

Applications for admission in the fall semester must be received by December 1 of each year.  There is a single admissions cycle annually.  Application materials are available online at
