Track 7 Applied Practicum


The Applied Practicum Research module, Track 7, is often challenging for CPM students who have been away from academic research or writing for a number of years. Even so, the Applied Practicum is meant to bring together the knowledge and skills gained from CPM training with a practical, work-based issue or problem to be explored. Much of the value of the CPM experience is in its practical application of theory and the sharing of real-life solutions with classmates and program faculty. While Track 7 is not required to be the final module of a student’s CPM sequence of courses, it is recommended, as students are prepared for this activity throughout many of the earlier Tracks.
