Students in their 3rd and 4th year can submit Independent Study proposals which allow 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. Independent Study proposals must be submitted at least 5 weeks before your proposed start date for the process.
The student should:
- 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
- E-mail a copy of the completed form to your faculty sponsor for their signature
- Send the signed copy of the form to Dr. Michael Mello (email@example.com) for approval no later than 5 weeks before the start date of the project
