Abstract: Failure to complete a dissertation or other required research project is a major factor contributing to doctoral program attrition. The challenges of planning and carrying out a research project are daunting for many traditional students and may be increased for students in part-time, predominantly online doctoral programs. This paper describes the Ewing Model© developed and implemented in the Doctor of Health Sciences program at A.T. Still University. The Model is characterized by a... More

This is a very interesting article explaining a well-thought model to tackle PhD attrition. Even when completing a PhD in the traditional manner, it takes a significant amount of time to understand the research process and become productive quickly. The approach suggested by the Ewing model, with structured courses that help students complete a significant amount of thesis work, provides great support in order to avoid the usual trial-and-error method that leads to wasted time.
