Scholarly Paper

Participation in the Scholarly Concentration in Community Health requires writing a scholarly paper which brings together elements from the core courses. The paper gives students an opportunity to delve more deeply into an area of personal interest and to learn about the background and current approaches to solving a community health issue. The topic that you choose can (but does not have to) be related to your Community Health Assessment course topic and community group. It is up to you to decide. Most importantly, your topic should be one that interests you. If you are planning to pursue the Original Research Track, then this paper can serve as the foundation for a Medical Scholars proposal.
