Gateways Program

Capstone Project

All students in the Master of Medical Science program complete a focused community project of benefit to their longitudinal community healthcare site and patients.

You will be able to choose from a variety of projects offered by your community site.  Projects must be approved by both the ScM program director and the site coordinator at your community healthcare site.

Goals & Objectives

  • To integrate knowledge from different disciplines and from fieldwork experience
  • To independently explore a focused healthcare topic
  • To "give back" to community by collaborating with a Federally Qualifies Health Center (FQHC) to provide assistance on a quality improvement project of the FQHC's choice and of relevance to patients students have been seeing
  • To develop multiple transferable skills (eg. flexibility, collaboration/teamwork, scientific abstract writing, poster and oral presentation skills, teaching skills)
