CapstoneAt the end of your VPIL experience, your team will complete a capstone project as a culmination of all the clinical work you’ve done. First, you’ll work with your preceptor to identify an issue at your clinical site. For example, your team might investigate why some patients miss their appointments or what hinders children trying to follow their provider’s nutritional recommendations.

Capstone coaches from the VPIL faculty will work with your team to develop a strong aim statement, brainstorm potential responses to the issue, implement a solution, and draw conclusions. Finally, you’ll present it at an end-of-year colloquium, where you’ll share the results of your hard work with other VPIL teams and faculty.

Even after your time in VPIL ends, your implemented solution will stand as a lasting legacy to your work and growth at your clinical site.
