Scholarly Concentrations

In the Scholarly Concentrations Course, students are guided by course faculty to conduct a scholarly project and prepare a presentation of that project. In doing so, they will acquire skills for self-directed learning and identify options for pursuing an academic career in medicine. The program offers the following five areas of study:

  • Basic and Preclinical Science
  • Clinical Research
  • History of Medicine
  • HEART (Humanism, Ethics, Education, and the Arts of Medicine)
  • Public Health Research

Course Overview


Research Electives

Many students at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine decide to spend more time dedicated to mentored research with a Johns Hopkins faculty member. In some cases, the student may elect to do mentored research at another institution. In these cases, students can explore and register for electives through the Registrar’s office. Please note that you must register for all research electives prior to beginning your experience. Please refer to the Registrar for more details.
