Scholarly Project

MIH learners will select, design, and develop a scholarly project relevant to their career interests. An appropriate INMED faculty will be assigned to assist each learner with project selection and design, and to guide the learner through project completion. Scholarly projects may include:


  • A literature review on a pivotal subject connected with the learner’s career
  • quality improvement project related to the learner’s professional endeavors
  • Original research suitable for publication


Scholarly projects associated with the learner’s international service-learning experience will be given preference. Upon completion, learners will sit for a defense of their scholarly project before a jury 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.
