Course Code: MIH – SCP 950
An INMED Scholarly Project is the capstone requirement for the Professional Master’s Degree in International Health (MIH). MIH learners will select, design, and develop a scholarly project relevant to their career interests. An appropriate INMED faculty will be assigned to assist the learner with each step of the process, guiding the learner through project completion within six months after registering. Scholarly Projects may include:
- A quality improvement project related to the learner’s professional endeavors
- A literature review on a pivotal subject connected with the learner’s career
- Original scientific research suitable for publication
Scholarly projects associated with the learner’s international service-learning experience will be given preference. Upon completion, learners will present their scholarly project before a quorum of INMED faculty, who may inquire regarding any component of the project or of the MIH educational experience. Satisfactory completion of the Scholarly Project earns 5 credit hours.
