Clinical Residency Requirements
The required residency will be structured to promote the formal and informal exchanges that are fundamental to the doctoral learning process. Students will attend three on-campus residency seminars during their course of study.
Residency 1 will provide an introduction to UT student services and the online delivery format with training by library, instructional and information technology support staff. Students will also receive training on using databases for literature searches. The orientation session will also emphasize the importance of students getting to know each other and creating a sense of community. Students are also oriented to the DNP handbook, program and graduation requirements, and there will be an open discussion to address questions.
Residency 2 serves as the transition between year one and two to provide face-to-face instruction on scholarly project proposal presentation, discuss PICOT development and literature review and advisor meetings.
Residency 3 will occur during the last semester. Students will present their final scholarly project to the cohort, faculty and practice partners.
