Paper Surgery Groups

Paper Surgery Groups bring together five to six MPC Faculty, Staff and/or Graduate Student Members from across the disciplines to provide writing support and feedback on the group members' writing. The goal of the groups is to produce high-quality population studies research papers ready for publication (or dissertation). Groups generally meet once a month to review one member's paper. Papers are circulated at least one week before each meeting to allow group members time to read and provide thoughtful feedback. Procedures and practices may vary slightly from group to group.
