Education Project

As part of the Graduate Medical Education Sciences program, students design and carry out a medical education project under the direction of a Graduate Medical Education Sciences faculty mentor. The projects are designed according to the needs of the School of Medicine curriculum and the student's interests. Projects are presented during the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences annual Student Research Week and again at the end of the second year. Examples of past projects include: self-directed learning units, interprofessional education workshops, or creating additional educational materials for the curriculum.
