Entry-level health professional education programs are facing a severe shortage of faculty to train future providers to effectively address the complex health needs of the public in a shifting health care landscape. Faculty with a Ph.D. in Translational Health Sciences draw on principles of adult learning, technology enhanced active learning, interprofessional education, curriculum management and translational research to produce tomorrow’s evidence-based practitioners.

Beginning Fall 2018, there will be a part-time track for Translational Health Science PhD students who are interested in applying the competencies of the PhD in translational science to education and educational research. Students in the part time track for translational science in education will enroll in 6 credits per semester.
