FCE Student Designed Course Proposal AY 2014-2015
The self-designed FCE is your opportunity to develop an experience that isn’t offered anywhere else in the medical school curriculum. Use the Capstone self-designed FCE to develop a unique experience that will specifically inform your Capstone project. You may or may not decide to ask your Capstone project advisor to be your FCE supervisor; you may want to gain experience in a department that does not naturally “fit” into your project plan; or you may want to work with another professional who has expertise in your topic. The Capstone FCE must not serve simply as “more time” to work on your project (e.g., extra digging in the library); it must be a distinct, independent piece that informs your project. You may design up to two distinct Capstone FCEs. While approving a Capstone FCE your proposal will evaluated as if it were a standalone FCE and all rules and requirements for self designed FCEs will apply.
General program requirements apply to all self-designed FCEs. See the FCE Program FAQ webpage for specific requirements.
note: All FCE proposals that include or consist of International Medical Education (travel) must be accompanied by a completed Global Health Experience Request (GHER).
