Provides comprehensive, systematic strategies for summarizing the current state of understanding in a given field. Each student will be required to identify and work with an academic mentor of that given field throughout the course. The purpose of this review course may be to present a coherent argument, or to highlight scientific gaps in the literature. Teaches students to be able to identify the ?why? behind a new study, find and analyze other studies that address similar research questions, or studies that address your research question on a different level. Will enable students to learn how to synthesize the current state of knowledge (either clinical or research) of the chosen topic as a first step of becoming a clinical/translational researcher.
