Clinician Educator Training Program—master's degree, certificate programs and courses at UPSOM

The Clinician Educator Training Program is a collaborative effort, drawing on the expertise, strength, and commitment of faculty at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and School of Education.

The Clinician Education Training Program (CETP) is designed for a diverse group of individuals whose career focus is medical education and clinical teaching. Our current and past trainees have included faculty and fellows in general medicine, dentistry, sub-specialty medicine, pediatrics, family medicine, emergency medicine, and psychiatry. In order to be accepted to this program, applicants must demonstrate a high level of interest in and potential for the pursuit of long-term career focus in teaching and leadership positions in medical education programs.

The CETP consists of a tightly integrated, rigorous yet flexible curriculum consisting of three components: core courses plus observed teaching activities focusing on adult learning, enhancing classroom and clinical teaching skills, curriculum development, professional development and leadership, innovative strategies in medical education, and medical administration; a set of courses to provide trainees with a standardized set of research skills; and the successful completion of a mentored research project on curriculum development. The CETP offers a master's degree or certificate in medical education.
