Critically ‘Thinking Science’:
The R3 Graduate Science Initiative
Our R3 graduate science initiative teaches critical thinking and clear communication skills; furthers broad interests in science and its history, and helps students become advocates for good scientific practice.

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 inter-departmental R3 Graduate Science Initiative at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health emphasizes the three "R's" (rigor, responsibility and reproducibility) of good scientific practice. We aim to innovate science education at the graduate level and beyond by bringing more critically-creative thinking, interdisciplinary practice, as well as social responsibility into the training for life and public health scientists.
