Mentored Research Opportunities
Mentored Research allows students the opportunity to gain valuable research experience in a mentoring relationship with a full-time Health Science faculty member. Students must approach the faculty member and express interest in mentored research. Students should choose a faculty member based on mutual research interests, or a faculty member whom they have had as an instructor and built a good repertoire. Students should set an appointment with the faculty member and come prepared with one or two research ideas. If the faculty member sees the research potential and is willing to work with the student, mentored research can begin. If the faculty member has another research project they would like the student to work on, this can also allow mentored research to begin. Once the student and faculty member have agreed on the project, students can register for up to 3.0 credits of Health 491R, Mentored Research. The faculty member and student set the criteria for the research as far as hours, workload, publication, final report, etc. Once the semester is over, the faculty member will assign a letter grade to the student based on the established criteria. To view the research interests of faculty members, see individual faculty profiles.
