Key Dates and Timings

The duration of most courses is 24 teaching weeks over two semesters (seven to eight months total).

  • semesters 1 and 2 (late February to early November) or
  • semesters 2 and 3 (mid July to mid February).

Exceptions are the epidemiology courses (118.785, 118.786), which are single semester (either February–June or July–November).

Research reports (Capstone courses) (118.851, 118.852, 118.853) are offered each year over Semester 1&2.


(please note that 118.785 is now called Introduction to Evidence Based Practice)

Weekly time commitment per course

Each course offered over 2 semesters involves about 5-6 hours of work per week – one-eighth of a full-time workload.

For each epidemiology course (15 credits) plan to spend 10-15 hours of study per week during the semester.
For business courses students should plan for 25 hours of study per week for the period of the course.

"That was probably the best continuing professional development course I have ever done."

"This is my 5th MVM paper. I have found the papers really beneficial. The more you learn, the more you start to see. My only complaint is that it was not available when I was a new grad."
