In this course, students who are considering writing a clinical case study dissertation will learn the fundamentals of writing a dissertation proposal for this format. The course will introduce students to the clinical, ethical, and practical considerations involved in completing a clinical case study. The purpose of a clinical case study dissertation is to integrate theory and practice, including scientific and philosophical foundations. Clinical case study dissertations provide a detailed and intensive examination of the student’s own clinical work. Unlike a traditional dissertation, which prepares students to conduct empirical research, the clinical case study focuses on the development of critical thought, as well as research and writing skills that have immediate relevance to clinical work.
