The University of Texas at Houston offers three graduate programs which emphasize teaching and learning for health science professionals online and on the campus of the Texas Medical Center. The Master's of Education degree began in 2003 and is now offered primarily online. A four-course certificate program that focuses on integrating innovative technologies in health science education is also taught online. An executive doctorate in Professional Leadership with an Emphasis in Health Science Education is also offered in a traditional face-to-face format in the Texas Medical Center and is designed to be completed in approximately 2½ years.
Courses are taught by University of Houston College of Education faculty and the degrees are awarded by the University of Houston. The instructors utilize academic activities that students can use in their professional lives as they explore best practices in teaching, learn to design and conduct research and investigate the uses of instructional technology in academic healthcare environments.
These graduate programs are aimed at healthcare professionals (such as physicians, dentists, nursing faculty, allied health professionals, basic science faculty, fellows, residents, medical and dental students, staff and others) who are working or studying at a healthcare institution, either in the Houston area or elsewhere.
