Medical Tutorials

Medical Tutorials are non-credit, non-graded experiences supervised by faculty at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

The goals of Medical Tutorials are to:

  • broaden students’ concept of medicine
  • introduce students to different spheres of medicine, including research and patient care
  • develop students’ understanding of medical training and healthcare teams
  • help students reflect on their interests as they relate to a career in healthcare.

Medical Tutorials are offered as:

  • Clinical Research
  • Laboratory Research
  • Translational Research
  • Community-Based Research
  • Educational Research (e.g., improvement of training curricula for residents or medical students)
  • Clinical Trials
  • Hospital Quality Improvement (e.g., patient or employee satisfaction or patient safety)
  • Community Outreach and Awareness (e.g., health education)
  • Practicum (shadowing that includes structured reflections, didactics, and/or a capstone project).
