Longitudinal Scholar's Project (LSP)
The Longitudinal Scholar's Project (LSP) clerkship is a longitudinal clerkship spanning the four years of medical school. The course will introduce medical students to three basic areas: health research, patient safety and quality improvement (PSQI) and community and global health including service learning. The clerkship involves a longitudinal project in one of the three areas and culminates in a graded poster presentation. Rather than have every student participate in each category, the clerkship provides the students with a foundation of basic understanding in research, patient safety and quality improvement and community/global health, while requiring each student to do a project in one area to be presented at any time during medical school. The poster may be presented at a committee approved poster venue. Outstanding work will be eligible for awards. An extensive listing of completed LSP projects is available in our Projects Repository file .
