Critically 'Thinking Science'
The R3 Graduate Science Initiative
Our new R3 graduate science curriculum is bringing a critically-philosophical way of 'thinking science' back into biomedical and public health education.
The norms of good scientific practice are at the center of our efforts to educate our students as value-based, critically thinking and responsible members of the scientific community.
We provide opportunities for meaningful practice and outreach projects in diverse teams of students from various biomedical and public health disciplines.
We are strongly committed to excellence in teaching and mentoring.
Our instructors use active learning strategies in on-site and online environments, based on humanistic education frameworks.
Interested students are trained in evidence-based teaching techniques.
We value social responsibility and provide our students with opportunities for community engagement to practice mindfulness, mutual respect and cultural awareness skills.
The new, inter-departmental R3 track at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health aims to innovate graduate science education by bringing more critically-philosophical thinking, interdisciplinary practice, as well as social responsibility into the training for life and public health scientists.
We strive to educate interdisciplinary leaders in the public health and biomedical workforce, who are:
- Open-minded and self-directed practitioners, communicators, and educators
- Skilled in scientific reasoning and methodology
- Creative in complex problem solving
- Versed in critical reflection on a wide range of science topics
- Role models in academia, industry, scientific public service, health policy, government- and non-government organizations, science communication, and public heath practice.
- Outstanding mentors and change agents in their workplaces and communities, dedicated to improving scientific practice in society.
