Pathway Project

Students are required to complete a project of their choosing—it can be a medical humanities or bioethics research project, a creative project (visual arts, narrative, film, photography, theatre), or an educational project (develop and teach a Medical Humanities seminar or elective with a faculty co-teacher during fourth year). Students select an advisor/mentor for this project from the Medical Humanities and Bioethics faculty or other faculty approved by the Pathway Director.

In Year 1 and 2, students must meet with their advisor to identify areas of interest, learning goals and appropriate activities; identify, research and develop a project. In Year 4, students must meet with their Pathway Project mentor to review progress on their Project.  The Pathway Project Progress Check Sheet is due by Oct 15 in Year 4.  A two page Project Proposal is due by June 30 in Year 3. Completed Projects must be submitted by February 1 in Year 4.
