The Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine (CUSOM) Master of Health Professions Education (MHPE) degree program is committed to selecting applicants who will be an asset to the health professions. The goals of the admissions process are to:
- Understand each applicant as a whole person.
- Evaluate the potential for success in the CUSOM MHPE program.
- Assess the candidate’s commitment and aptitude as a future teacher and leader.
- Consider the applicant’s interest in serving rural and underserved populations.
The MHPE program admissions personnel, under the direction of the Program Director, will consider the academic background, achievements, standardized test scores, current work and career goals of each applicant. In addition to academic performance, the MHPE program admissions personnel places emphasis on the ethical treatment of all humanity, the demonstration of personal merit, compassion, community involvement, communication skills, teamwork, leadership, professionalism, integrity, dedication to professional goals, and the promotion of diversity.
We participate in Radius, an admissions and enrollment management platform.
Radius will be available June 2020.
The MHPE program makes every effort to recruit students with diverse backgrounds to foster the cultural richness to meet its Mission and Goals. MHPE applicants will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ethnicity or national origin, religion, disability, genetic information, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
