Honors Project Objectives

The P3-1 Honors Project is an activity within the P3-1 course where groups of first-year medical students are asked to identify community needs that affect health outcomes, collect data to assess the current status for a particular population, and gain skills working as a group. Students participating in an Honors Project will:

  • Identify community needs that affect health outcomes
  • Perform research and data collection activities to assess the current status of community and population needs
  • Gain skills working as a group
  • Navigate the complexities of working with a community partner
  • Present a project in a scholarly forum

Project Scope

  • The Honors Project continues from first year to second year as part of P3/Docs
    • P3-1: Students identify a population and problem, exploring the problem in the community via a needs assessment and planning an intervention.
    • P3-2: Students implement and evaluate the planned intervention
  • For both experiences, completion of an Honors Project is required to achieve honors
