The Master of Science in Health Science Education (HSED) is an inter-professional program designed to develop skills in both research and scholarship in health professions education. The program is targeted to health care practitioners and clinical educators (physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, midwives, physician assistants, social workers, etc.), and others who teach or would like to conduct research in health professions education. Non-health practitioners will only be considered for the full-time, thesis stream. The HSED program provides students with opportunities to develop a comprehensive understanding of current professional practice in health science pedagogy and research principles in health science education. This program strives to synthesize core competencies in the research scholarship of health professions education with practical application. Students will gain the research skills, pedagogical knowledge, and professional experience necessary to succeed in a variety of areas of health science education and practice.

The HSED program offers online courses in cognition and curriculum, technical and non-technical skills,online learning, educational leadership, assessment, evaluation, and research methods. In addition, two mandatory in-person residency periods must be completed. The program offers students two completion pathways: a course-based option that is offered in online format either through part-time or full-time studies, or a thesis-based option offered primarily via full-time studies. Part-time thesis studies may be considered for full-time McMaster faculty that engage the Program as students provided that an appropriate supervisory relationship is established. The program will be highly accessible through blended delivery featuring primarily online coursework.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • Integrate graduate level training in research scholarship, evidence-based education pedagogy, educational leadership, interprofessionalism, and McMaster’s FHS signature health science curriculum
  • Enable knowledge, academic skill and attitude pertaining to health science education at the graduate level
  • Enhance preparedness for advanced professional and inter-professional academic roles including leadership and research in health science education
  • Engage learners with interactive learning strategies in both classroom and online learning formats
  • Enable learners to utilize theory and education pedagogy for classroom and online learning, communication and assessment
