DPT 655: Research Project

Course Description Peer research study groups complete research projects under the supervision of their faculty advisors, including data collection, data analysis and preparation of the written research report. Student research groups will schedule regular meetings with their faculty advisors during each phase of the research project in order to insure reasonable progress towards successful completion of the study. In addition, periodic seminar meetings will be scheduled with the entire class to provide a forum for students to share their research experiences, both positive and negative, with each other. As opposed to a typical thesis, the written research report will take the form of a journal article prepared for submission for publication and/or a research paper prepared for submission for presentation at a professional conference.
