Projects will vary by site but generally include community needs assessments and implementation of patient initiatives (e.g., education, outreach, and/or informational programs). Sites will provide the goal and objectives of the project, but students will have input into design, activities, etc.
Examples of projects completed by previous cohorts included the following:
- Analyses of ongoing clinical trial enrollment methods and demographics
- Assessing vaccine accessibility and availability in underserved communities
- Developing models to increase patient accessibility to treatment (e.g., cancer, mental health, congenital disorders)
