*Research: This component of the curriculum involves on site work experiences coupled with formal classroom presentations summarizing the work. The Experiential component will be tailored to the student's career path and can range from traditional laboratory research to Service Learning programs in medical or professional settings. The major goals of this course are to 1) provide a learning component that will solidify the student's resolve in pursuing a particular career
