In this course, you will be assigned an MAS mentor to discuss your career development plan, self-assessment and hone in on an independent study project (ISP). During this course you will also be working with your MAS mentor, the ISP Dataset Coordinator and the Mentor Director to determine who your research mentor will be. By the end of the course, you will submit an ISP prospectus which will be a summary of your proposed research project and goals. The course will consist of readings, assignments and formalized mentoring sessions as well potentially meeting one or two research mentors. This course should be a stepping stone into the ISP course.  Once your research mentor has been assigned, you will look into datasets that tie into your ISP and plan a pace of study for your project.

Note: for master's students enrolled in the Clinical Research program ONLY. For more information please visit the program website:
