Clinical Learning

Experiential learning is crucial for preparing students to provide high-quality patient care. This is why we guarantee clinical experiences starting in the first year of your undergraduate program.

How We Approach Clinical Learning

Providing frequent clinical opportunities helps to ensure that you are prepared for a future in health care. You’ll be in the clinical setting during the first year of your program, helping transfer the knowledge and skills you’re learning in the classroom to actual patient care.
