Medical Education Certificate

With recent approval from the UI Provost’s office, the Carver College of Medicine now offers a certificate in medical education. Available to College faculty and professional staff, as well as UI resident physicians and fellows, the certificate program gives interested individuals a new way to enhance their scholarship and skills in teaching, curriculum design, and educational assessment. If students complete the certificate and then decide to apply to the Masters in Medical Education (MME) Program, courses taken for the certificate can be applied to the MME degree.


Those interested in the Certificate will complete the application form for “Non-Candidate for Degree” following the same deadlines as the MME Degree (July 15 for fall admission, November 15 for spring admission, and April 15 for summer admission) as well as submitting the same materials as the MME Degree. Tuition rates are the same as for the MME (see Table 9 of the Graduate tuition description).
