Clinical education is an exciting and educational part of the curriculum.
The Director of Clinical Education will post a list of available slots for each clinical experience, based on commitments provided by sites. Students may submit preferences before assignments are completed. Coursework preparing students for clinical education will occur the semester preceding each of the experiences.
