What our student's say
“I am passionate about learning and understanding how students learn. This passion was further fuelled by IMU’s vision of becoming the best healthcare educator in Asia. IMU provided me with plenty of learning opportunities which I grabbed to update myself on newer learning methods and techniques. Each opportunity has led to another chance until I enrolled in Postgraduate Certificate of Health Professions Education course. This was a very comprehensive course. This course has been designed for the working teacher who could use the experiences and opportunities available to learn. All assignments were constructed so they can relate to the on-the-job experiences. The knowledge and skills gained from this course groomed me with a new set of competencies and had landed me the most important role; a programme director for Bachelor of Dental Surgery in the School of Dentistry. I am now thrilled as I can apply both knowledge and skills learned from the course and my previous experiences as an educator to conduct the programme effectively. I am now looking forward to enrol in Postgraduate Diploma level to learn more about health professions education.
The PGHPE programme has added meaning to my career as an educator. Having taught pre-university programmes for many years, I am now able to apply what I learnt in PGHPE in my classroom. Being a Senior Lecturer in the Foundation in Science programme in IMU which aims to prepare students for their tertiary education in medical, pharmacy and health sciences programmes, the Health Professions Education has enabled me to teach in a more focused manner in preparing my students for their tertiary studies in health sciences. From the preparation of the curriculum to the teaching and learning activities to assessments, the PGHPE has prepared me well
The PGHPE programme has helped me to be a better teacher. After completing the PGDHPE, I am able to comprehend the theories behind teaching and learning, that can be translated into better practice of education. In addition, it has also given me confidence in conducting educational related research which is different from pure science studies
The PGHPE has enlighten me in the area of preparing and writing a research paper…. PGHPE has added value and knowledge in preparing the research paper in a systematic approach which I can apply the knowledge in the research field as part of my career advancement.
I have really enjoyed the PGHPE programme. I find the discussions very thought provoking and I am able to learn from the lecturer’s expertise as well as from the other students. The program has provided me with insight into instructional and curriculum design and helped me to improve my teaching. I feel I am able to contribute more to my department and to the University. I am really glad for having taken up this programme and look forward to applying what I have learnt.
