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. Scholarly projects may include:


Literature review on a pivotal subject connected with the learner’s career

Quality improvement plan related to the learner’s professional endeavors

Original scientific research suitable for publication


Registration for  the Scholarly Project need not be confined to the beginning of a Term. The project must be complete within six months of registering for the course. 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.
