Detailed Job Description

Quinnipiac University - Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine invites applications for the position of Concentration Capstone Coordinator. This role will report directly to the Director of the Scholarly Reflection and Concentration Capstone Course.


The Coordinator will assist in the coordination, implementation and management of student enrollment and completion of both concentration selectives and capstone projects, working with both affiliated clinical faculty and faculty from other Quinnipiac University Schools.

About the Capstone Project:

To further enrich the educational experience, students are required to select a capstone project that provides an in-depth exposure to one of the following concentrations:

  • Global, public and community health
  • Health policy and advocacy
  • Health management and leadership
  • Health communication
  • Medical education
  • Translational, clinical and basic science research
  • Medical humanities

Students learn the techniques of scholarly inquiry through formal course work and acquire knowledge in a chosen area by taking an elective course each semester in one of the previously mentioned concentrations starting in the spring semester of the first year (three total). This capstone assists students with organizing and communicating information. In the second year, under the direction of a chosen capstone mentor, students initiate the capstone scholarly project. They have an additional eight weeks in the fourth year to complete the project. The work culminates in a poster or oral presentation at an interdisciplinary Student Research Day prior to graduation. In addition, their diplomas will indicate "Doctor of Medicine with Distinction in" the category they chose.
