The Centre for Medical and Health Sciences Educations (CMHSE) at Monash runs a Graduate Certificate of Health Professional Education (GCHPE). The Certificate course is designed to up-skill clinical teachers in medical education best-practice and is therefore a requirement of new employees in the Faculty.
