The four possible areas for capstone projects:

Grant Proposal or Research Plan

The capstone project would simulate a grant or research proposal. The project would include a clear statement of the research question, the specific aims of the proposal, review of literature, study design, methods of analysis, implications and significance of the work. The research question would be one that is encountered in professional work such as the evaluation of a public health intervention.

Interested community-based organizations:

Research Report

The capstone project would involve the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data to address a public health problem. The project would include sections on the research question, study design, data collection procedures, data analysis, interpretation, and significance of findings. Please note that the appropriate IRB approval may need to be obtained for such a project.

Interested community-based organizations:

Public Health Program Plan

The capstone project would involve the development of a plan to implement a public health program. It would address critical issues such as management, fiscal, ethical and logistical issues.
