Programme Information


Health professionals play an important role in preventing, treating and curing disease and in promoting health at the individual and societal levels. It is essential to ensure that those who train healthcare professionals create effective educational programmes that result in high quality health services.  


The Master of Health Professions Education Singapore (MHPE-S) is a two year part-time programme which focuses on the acquisition of knowledge and skills relevant for a career in the field of health professions education and research in Singapore. It will be conducted mostly online via distance-based learning, with two 3-week campus-based units (one per year) in Singapore. There will be thesis supervision/mentorship jointly offered by Singapore and Maastricht teaching faculty.


Learning Objectives

The MHPE programme is firmly rooted in educational theory. Participants are required to continuously use theory-based insights in dealing with authentic educational problems. Most of the cases used in the programme are derived from the student’s own professional environment. Exploring the interrelationship between educational theory, research and educational practice is a fundamental part of the MHPE programme.
