Tailor your study to fit your individual needs and professional interests. In this capstone course, the type of doctoral project you carry out can fall into one of five areas: case reports, community health projects, professional in-service, teaching, or preparation for a clinical specialty.
For some projects, the primary information and activity will be the creation of a clinical or administrative case-report presentation. For others, the activity and outcomes will focus on the creation of an educational in-service or teaching-learning discovery. Another potential area is the identification of a public health issue related to a community need, and the generation of a program or mechanism for addressing that issue.
Finally, if you are interested in obtaining an advanced certification in one of many approved sections, you have the option to use the practicum to prepare for the specialty examination. The expectation for many of these projects is eventual publication and/or presentation in a professional forum.
