The Graduate Programs in Biomedical Sciences and Public Health are committed to excellence in the didactic and research training of masters and doctoral degree students. We train academic professionals pursuing careers that support the nation through service in the government or public sectors.
Our graduate students are integral partners in advancing biomedical research and public health practice here at the university and around the world. They not only participate in and enrich the intellectual and scientific work of the laboratories in which they train, they represent the next generation of scholars who will overcome the scientific challenges that will confront practitioners of military medicine and public health.
The Introduction to Foundations in Health Professions Education (IFHPE) certificate, Foundations in Health Professions Education (FHPE) certificate, and Advanced Foundations in Health Professions Education (AFHPE) certificate are programs designed to be a stepping stone toward the MHPE or PhD in HPE. The IFHPE and FHPE certificates provide introductory coursework in education, teaching, and research, while the AFHPE certificate provides additional Master’s level coursework and requirements (without the requirement of a Master’s Thesis).
