RESI 8501 - DrPH Residency 1


(0 cr.) The purpose of Residency 1 is to orient students to the program, socialize with faculty and doctoral students to become part of the Walden doctoral community of scholar-practitioners, provide a program overview and discussions relating to requirements and expectations, and develop an understanding of the doctoral study requirements for DrPH students. Students will have the opportunity to meet with peers, faculty members, and academic advisors and other staff advisors. Topics include skills and resources for success, critical thinking for doctoral scholarship, library search strategies, tools for organizing and analyzing literature, scholarly writing, and APA Style. Students begin to develop initial ideas for their doctoral study and learn how to move from social programs to research problems and then to research questions. For the required final assignment, students reflect on each session to identify key points learned, specific resources needed for their study, and next steps needed.
