Current Research

Dr. McCormack Tutt is currently working on two main research projects. The first is focused on assessing if visits for DPT students that are on clinical experiences are more valuable than a phone call.  The second is the continued work on my dissertation research which looks at the transfer of learning for healthcare students from their training in the classroom to their hands-on patinet care in the clincial setting, as related to interprofessional education and interprofessional collaborative practice.
