Prerequisite(s):

This course is third of three PhD seminars designed to provide students with knowledge and skills necessary to meet PhD milestones: conducting a systematic synthesis of research, writing a grant, and preparing publications. This seminar includes three clinical components: 1) seminars that include in-depth review of processes and components of preparing publications including a focus on visual representation via tables, figures, and graphs from conceptualization to design to production using software programs; 2) mentored work with research mentors and research teams to develop substantive content; and 3) peer review and critique. General and substantive specific approaches, resources, and methods are reviewed and discussed. The achievement of milestones is foundational to scientific inquiry and to the development of scientists.
