Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Reflections on Illness

Writing and crafting a series of creative non-fiction pieces that explore the experience of a person with a particular disease, especially if it is your own. Students would be introduced to the concept of narrative medicine and encouraged to use writing to think deeply and reflect on some aspect of the art of medicine.

Life Post Pandemic

COVID-19 has affected us all. How will life post-pandemic be fundamentally different compared to the before-times? Students will pursue answers to this question through personal reflection, research, interviewing, and more.
