Special Topics in Psychiatry

Supervised reading project on a particular topic
(No classroom)

To take this class, you must do the following: 

1) Think of a topic to write a paper on. This topic must be, by and large, different from your thesis topic. For example, there could be some general overlap, but if more than a few sentences ended up in your thesis, this would be indicative of excessive overlap. The idea, of course, is that the paper should be something over and above your thesis.
2) Identify a faculty member who will help guide your reading, provide feedback on your thinking, and grade your paper. This person could be your thesis supervisor, but often it is someone else.
3) Send Dr. Mechawar (i) a brief (e.g. one paragraph) description of the proposed paper, (ii) a brief description of your thesis topic, (iii) a brief explanation of how the topic of the paper differs from your thesis (sometimes this is obvious and easy, sometimes not so obvious), and (iv) a letter or email from the faculty member who will supervise you and mark the paper.
