Projects & Internships

Along with classroom projects and case studies, each undergraduate student will take on one semester long project.

HMS faculty work one-on-one with students to identify individual, professional goals and interests. Students are then recommended to organizations within the community that support their goals and interests.

Graduate Level Projects

Graduate students have the option, in lieu of electives, to complete a project designed to build on his or her knowledge and professional network. These projects can range from 1 - 6 credits with each credit representing 60 hours of project experience.

Projects are often sought in the student's place of employment that could lead to new employment opportunities. For those students not employed in a related job, the project experience often leads to employment opportunities. These projects encompass both traditional and non-traditional areas of the medical profession.
