The Clinical Program consists of five semesters for a total of 72 weeks. All 48 weeks of the core rotations are mandatory and 24 weeks of the elective rotations are selected by a student.

This listing does not indicate the sequence of courses. The core rotation schedules are determined by the Clinical Coordinator at the time students are admitted into the Clinical Program. In general, students complete their core rotations before doing additional requirements and electives. Electives listed above are examples of the many options available. Elective choices and schedules are arranged individually by students in consultation with the Clinical Science Department and the Dean of Clinical Science.

Some Hospitals may require students to attend an orientation. Orientations can last for up to a week and are a non-credit experience.
