The self-designed FCE is your opportunity to develop an experience that isn’t offered anywhere else in the medical school curriculum. These experiences can be done within the medical school or at an outside institution.
You can also use this form to develop a unique experience that will specifically inform your Capstone project. You may ask your Capstone project advisor to be your FCE supervisor or you may want to work with another professional who has expertise in your topic. The Capstone FCE must not serve simply as “more time” to work on your project (e.g., extra digging in the library); it must be a distinct, independent piece that informs your project. You may design up to two distinct Capstone FCEs. While approving a Capstone FCE, your proposal will be evaluated as if it were a stand-alone FCE; all rules and requirements for self designed FCEs will apply.
