Medical Education Concentration

The Medical Education Concentration is designed to prepare students for careers in medical teaching and educational research. Our goal is to provide essential training which will enable graduates to advance health professions education. Program participants will complete coursework covering teaching strategies, research methods, team dynamics and other skills that will position graduates to lead and inspire others to learn. 

The Medical Education Concentration is offered at PCOM (Philadelphia, PA) and PCOM Georgia (Suwanee, GA).

Upon completion of a Medical Education Concentration, the student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate interdisciplinary knowledge of higher education delivery systems
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the broad range of topics within anatomy   
  • Apply advanced teaching methods
  • Apply their knowledge toward the successful implementation of course content  
  • Show proficiency in written and oral communication
