What is Team Projects?

Team Projects provides students with an authentic and immersive course experience during which they apply their acquired teamwork skills to simulated real-world problems. Through this experiential learning process, participants work in interprofessional teams and apply teamwork skills to solve problems across specialized project tracks, including commercialization, pharmaceutical development, healthcare or other areas proposed by institutional leaders.

The course culminates with a judged competitive Capstone event open to all members of the academic community during which course participants share their project proposals and receive direct feedback from field experts. The winning team will receive a cash prize to support their ongoing professional development.
