This experience provides practical insight into the challenges of developing sound and relevant research, while honing students’ analytical skills. The thesis also relates to our mission in training leaders to express their thoughts in written form. Students will be mentored by an advisor from the Boston University School of Medicine to develop their project related to clinical medicine, medical education, or health workforce. Each student is provided with two to three dedicated months to complete their project during the clinical phase of the program. Once the final draft is signed by the thesis advisors, the manuscript is uploaded and archived into both the Boston University Mugar Library and the international ProQuest Thesis and Dissertation registry.
