Student & Faculty Research



A goal for our graduates is for each to be consumers of research, able to identify researchable problems, advocate and participate in research, and incorporate findings from professional literature into clinical practice. When it comes to research, our faculty also lead by example. Information about the publications, presentations, projects, and other research activities our faculty and students have participated in are listed below.
