Advice and Consultations

The lab has a wide variety in expertise in the medical humanities all along the project spectrum, from idea development to publication/presenation, that is happily shared. 


Lab members can connect you to available communication technology in the library, from IT, and across campus.


The lab can help advice and coordinate with the library and/or room reservations to find space on campus for medical humanities activities whether it is for working on a project or finding a display/ presentation space. 

Capstone Project Advisors

Role of a capstone project advisor:

The Capstone Scholarly Project (CSP) is a mentored, longitudinal project based on each student’s personal passion. Students are the primary drivers of projects, working with their Learning Community (LC) mentors for the FOM1 year. The LC Mentors help students in the beginning stages of their Capstone work, such as picking topics, defining initial project steps, and recommending Project Advisors.

Project Advisors Should have expertise and interest in the student’s proposed Capstone project area and available to participate as an advisor for the student through project completion. The Project Advisors provide knowledge, skills, and experience to support students in the design, execution, writing, and presentation of their work. Students submit reports on their projects each term to help guide and document their efforts.

UMass Chan faculty and students are actively involved in numerous projects, and additional projects are only constrained in their imagination. Students interested in a medical humanities project are encouraged to join the Humanities Lab mailing list, attend meetings, and complete the "Looking for a Capstone Project Advisor" form on this page.
