The Capstone project is a formative and summative assessment of the student’s knowledge and competencies in their interprofessional health science concentration. The Capstone course runs like a seminar although the student has a project advisor to guide the work. The outcome measures of the Capstone are a written product, either a paper or poster presentation, and/or an oral presentation of the work to the department, school or elsewhere. The individual Capstone project to showcase the student’s interest will be decided upon by the advisor and student. The Capstone project can be research-related, direct work experience or other application. The main criterion is that the advisor and student agree that the Capstone project reflects the student’s knowledge and skills in or related to their interprofessional health science concentration.
