PSYC6519Advanced Research Apprenticeship3 ch
Research experience and training is considered an integral part of graduate training in clinical psychology. Students who are admitted into the program with a Master's degree from another institution are required to participate in an advanced research apprenticeship during their first year in the program, usually with their thesis supervisor. It is expected that students will be exposed to multiple aspects of the research process, including some combination of background, reading, study design, data collection, data analysis, and manuscript preparation. Students will submit to the Clinical Program Committee by February 1 of their first year a brief description of their apprenticeship project (250-300 words) and a timeline for carrying out the specific activities associated with completing this project (e.g ethics submission, data analysis). In late June (specifc date TBA), students will make a 15-minute oral presentation of their apprenticeship project to clinical faculty and students. A written report of their project, in journal article format, is due to the supervisor the same day. The supervisor will normally assign credit (i.e a letter grade)by June 30. In most cases, the student will collaborate with the supervisor on revisions to the apprenticeship report prior to submission for conference presentation and/or publication. Required course for students entering the program with a Master's degree from another institution.Prerequisites: None.
