Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, in partnership with the University of Cincinnati College of Education, Criminal Justice and Human Services (CECH), offers a Master of Education (MEd) program for physicians and other healthcare providers involved with or interested in medical teaching and learning and educational research. Those in clinical fellowships may seek the MEd degree as an alternative to the traditional MPH or MS degrees.
The emphasis of the program is on adult learning, curriculum and teaching methods, and medical education evaluation and research.

When completing the On-Line Graduate School Application for the Distance Learning program, be sure to select the program “Medical Education (Curr and Instr)-Distance Learning”. MEd appears in the Award column.
The program is offered as a distance learning program only. There is no on-site requirement, and all courses are conducted via Blackboard from the University of Cincinnati website. Many instructors also choose to have a few synchronous class meetings using web conferencing tools.
Coursework includes assigned reading materials, active participation in the course discussion board, and assignments, tests, and group and individual projects. If a course requires an individual project, you are encouraged to choose and design a project that is applicable to your home institution and its organizational needs. This ensures the program is immediately relevant and useful.

Additional career options are listed on the Career Development Center's Web site.
