Certificate in Medical Education: Core Curriculum

The Certificate in Medical Education requires a completion of 15 credits. The majority of those credits (minimum of 9 credits) must be Medical Education courses. Students may choose any Medical Education courses to fulfill this 9 credit requirement. The remaining 6 credits can be any course approved by their academic advisor.


"[The core curriculum in medical education] gave me opportunities to practice the many aspects of planning and evaluation of medical education."
