template for preparing Practice Sample now available  (v6.0 11/26/2013)

As many of you start to create a Practice Sample (PS), we thought you might benefit from a template some of us have used. While the required elements of the PS are enumerated in the Examination Manual (pp. 6-14), the manner in which you com pose the document has been left up to you. Based on some of your emails, we thought you might like a suggested format for the PS.  We have also drafted an ethics attestation form which is also a required component of the Practice Sample
