Written Assignments and Communication

All written assignments must be typed using a word processor and submitted using the appropriate medium (paper, disk, or electronic mail) as assigned by the course instructor. Any references must be cited using American Medical Association (AMA) style.

For all papers and written assignments, the instructor may request hard copies of all articles and other resources to check for plagiarism. If hard copies are requested, the student must furnish these within 24 hours of the request.

Before submitting any written assignment, you should first utilize the spell-check and grammar-check features of your word processor. All written communication must reflect:

  • Professional terminology appropriate to the audience, reflecting the student's level of preparation
  • Proper grammar, spelling, and syntax
