All newly admitted students are required to attend the Introduction to Health Professions Education during the last week of July. This course is offered on-campus in Chicago only and is the initial course for all students in both the on-campus intensive and online formats. The course serves the intertwined purposes of providing an orientation to the program’s major goals and themes, its programmatic elements, and its prototypical instructional methods of active and collaborative learning. This course will also provide an orientation to each of the other required courses and to the array of electives available to students in the MHPE program. Students will have an opportunity to meet faculty and alumni in both formal sessions and informal gatherings.
