Students in their 3rd and 4th year can submit an Independent Study proposal which allows them to complete a research project or clinical preceptorship at Brown, under the supervision of a Brown faculty member.
The total weeks of credit should reflect a minimum of 40 hours per week of work. Please allow one month before your proposed start date for the process.
The student should:
- first consult the faculty member who is being asked to serve as sponsor
- fill out an Independent Study proposal form. When complete, print and sign the form
- email a copy of the completed form to your faculty sponsor for their signature
- send the signed copy of the form to Dr. Michael Mello (firstname.lastname@example.org) for approval at least 3 weeks before the start date of the project
