Each PA Masters candidate is to complete an Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) Master Project prior to the end of the Clinical Year that is an EBM review or scholarly activity approved by the program. Completion of the Master Project is a graduation requirement.
The final outcome of the Master Project will be a manuscript ready for submission for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. This paper will be an EBM review or the outcome of a project that is designed by the candidate. Candidates will present the completed project or project-to-date in oral, poster or other suitable form in the community or at a professional meeting and/or on campus.
Projects must be designed to have a specific and measurable impact on PA education or on community health policy and/or practice. The research must meet rigorous methodological standards and advance knowledge.
