Advanced Education Programs

Image of continuum of training opportunities in education

Students, residents, fellows, and faculty members often are interested in developing their expertise as educators beyond what can be obtained from workshops and presentations. UCSF has several ways for individuals to develop their educational expertise. Students, residents, and fellows can enroll in the Health Professions Education Pathway to Discovery which provides a core program exposing learners to key areas in learning theory, curriculum development, pedagogy, assessment, and leadership. Faculty members have a similar opportunity for development through the Teaching Scholars Program. With this background, individuals may choose to pursue a Masters of Arts in Education at the University of California, Berkeley. For faculty members with an educational grounding and serious commitment to educational research, our doctoral program with the University Medical Center, Utrecht may be appropriate.
