Formation of Committee

By the end of the first semester, students should be completing a research practicum that is focused toward a specific area of research with a mentor who is associated with that area of research. Ideally, this mentor will chair the student’s supervisory committee and serve as the student’s research supervisor for the remainder of the student’s enrollment.

It is expected that students will have determined a general area of interest for their clinical and dissertation research and have contacted faculty who possess experience and expertise in that area. Therefore, students must form their supervisory committee by the end of the first semester of the first year of study.
