UIWSOM faculty and learners value scholarly inquiry as a vital component of the educational process. Here we provide some of the topics to consider as you develop a research project. Under each topic are links to other sites, videos and reading materials to help you develop a project. Contact ORI if you have additional questions. Good luck!
