The VA Boston Healthcare System Health Professions Education, Evaluation and Research (HPEER) Fellowship Program is a 2-year fellowship that will train you to use practice, inquiry, and quality improvement to advance healthcare professional education and become an educational leader. The VABHS Fellowship will use educational theory, an interprofessional and diverse faculty, strong academic affiliate relationships, and a partnership with the HPEER Coordinating Center to provide an exciting and innovative training experience for fellows.
Fellows can be from any healthcare profession (e.g., physician, nurse, psychologist), including non-clinical professions (e.g., MPH). Fellows will spend at least 80% of their time working on educational projects.
As a fellow, you will work with leaders in healthcare professional education to develop novel educational programming, evaluation methods, and educational research. You will work with several well-established interprofessional educational teams to develop scholarly projects. HPEER leadership will collaborate with you to develop a customized curriculum to meet your learning goals.
All fellows will complete a Whole Health education project and additional projects aligned with your interests as part of the following scholarly tracks: (1) Faculty development programming and educational leadership, (2) Geriatric education, (3) Mental health education, and (4) Quality improvement in education.
Further, you will be eligible to earn a Masters Degree in education at a discounted rate at affiliated Universities.
