A Model Master of Science Curriculum for Educators of Health Professionals: Instructional Alternatives, Implementation and Evaluation Plan.
Clymer, Ellen Saxe
The purpose of this applied research project at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (California) was to develop a new curriculum for the Master of Science in Education for Health Professionals program. Seven areas were explored in this study: (1) the learning needs of educators of health professionals; (2) proposed curriculum components; (3) barriers to pursuit of a graduate degree in education; (4) instructional alternatives; (5) available delivery systems to increase program accessibility; (6) an implementation plan; and (7) an evaluation plan. A review of the literature provided a foundation for the study. Methodology included telephone interviews, focus groups, reviews of course offerings and degree requirements, and use of external and internal expert information. The final product, a model curriculum for the Master of Science in Education, was developed following the validation process. Included in the appendixes are the criteria for the study and the model curriculum. (Contains approximately 150 references.) (CH)
