What is JMHPE in a few lines?

  • The program is a two-year program (But can be done in less) credit hour based study. It is conducted totally through distance learning. 
  • The curriculum has a six-week block or unit structure, during which students concentrate on specific subjects. In each of the units, various contributing disciplines are organized around a central theme.
  • The rationale behind this distance learning joint programme is to combine the academic Maastricht experience as a pioneering problem-based school in Europe with the practical Suez Canal experience as a pioneering community-oriented/based, problem-based school in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. The overall theme of the curriculum, which provides coherence to the programme as a whole, will be ‘the competencies required of an educationalist in the health professions domain’.
