Program Testimonials


“The UMKC MHPE program taught me the skills needed for leadership and scholarship in medical education.  These skills extend from instructional and curriculum design to assessment, evaluation, and research methods.  I use them weekly (if not daily) in my medical education practice, and they are the tools that have allowed me to advance in my career to Director of the Medicine Clerkship and Associate Director of the Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine as well as publication history and research funding.”
