The new Teaching Scholars Program (TSP) course offerings for 2018-2019 are now available. Please contact the IDEAS Office for more information ( on registration, requirements and pre-requisites.
The Teaching Scholars Program (TSP) is a series of nine courses aimed primarily at clinicians in health professions education (HPE). The courses provide "scholars" a knowledge base and skill set in educational theory, curriculum development, evaluation, and educational research.

New FoMD Non-credit Certificate: Teaching Scholars Program (TSP) Health Professions Educational Research

The TSP Health Professions Educational Research Certificate will be offered after the completion of three TSP courses: TSP 001 (required) and two of the following: TSP 005, TSP 006, or TSP 009. Participants are required to register for the certificate program. Once registered, they can enroll in courses. For registrants, there will be a non-refundable $150/course fee for each course. Courses can be audited for free, but if the participant wishes to later apply for the certificate based on completion of the courses, they will have to pay a one-time fee of $750 for the certificate and pay $150 /course for any course beyond three. If someone has already completed the TSP 001 course or has a master's degree in medical or health sciences education, they can apply that to the certificate requirement and will be only required to complete two of the research courses
