UF and the University of North Florida are partnering to offer a Master of Public Health degree, as well as a MPH certificate with a variety of emphases. Faculty, residents and fellows will be able to enroll in either track using an express application and with a menu of courses that meet their educational and clinical needs.
There will be two or three core courses for the certificate program, with ensuing electives to serve as focal points. For an academic track, electives include instructional design and technology, teaching and learning, and curriculum development and assessment. Clinical track electives include global health, epidemiology and mixed-methods research.
We plan for classes to start in fall 2020. Look for more information on this soon.
To assist faculty in receiving timely and relevant continuing education as part of development, we are creating videotaped lectures that are about 15 minutes long. Micro-lectures are presentations on a single, narrowly defined topic that provides key points or pearls.
Micro-lectures in development include:
- Evaluation and Feedback
- How to Utilize UF’s eLearning Platform Canvas in Residency Programs
- Mind Wandering and the Forgetting Curve
- So You Want to Do a Survey (Parts 1 and 2)
- Tips on Utilizing Poll Everywhere in Medical Lectures
We anticipate three to six micro-lectures per year. Email Colleen.Kalynych@jax.ufl.edu if you have ideas for topics or would like to facilitate a micro-lecture. Once Continuing Medical Education credits have been approved, lectures will appear on the Educational Development and Research website.
The Educational Development and Research website also features information on publication resources, tips on manuscript writing and an array of teaching resources. For instance, you can learn how to use the following to enhance your academic involvement: Canvas, Google Docs, UF’s Green Screen, Zoom and Mediasite.
Check back often, as our website is regularly updated.
