As a health educator, you probably recognise that although health educators have extensive knowledge and skills in the area of their professional discipline, the art and science of passing knowledge from one generation to the next is often overlooked in the context of demanding clinical, teaching, and/or research responsibilities.The truth is that many health professionals have no formal training in educational theory. Furthermore, busy schedules leave little time for improving your own educational knowledge and skills by attending scheduled courses or workshops. For this reason, the Graduate Diploma of Health Professional Education offers knowledge and skills in a flexible and contextualised manner to health professionals who are also tertiary educators.The Graduate Diploma of Health Professional Education provides a pathway for health professionals interested in developing their knowledge and skills in education, with the ultimate aim of becoming exemplary educators and educational role models. Over the course of your studies, you gain a sound knowledge of contemporary learning theory, as well as a wide repertoire of educational skills that are specifically aimed at best practice in contemporary health education contexts.
