Externship/Clinical Rotation Training

An externship is an opportunity for a learning experience outside the school’s facilities. School Externship Supervisors place students at medical offices, clinics, hospitals, health care centers, or other areas related to training.

These facilities serve as medical affiliates to provide the students with valuable patient contact. Here, under the supervision of the physician, clinical staff, or business manager, the students experience the daily responsibilities of administering patient care and related support services. Externship for all programs is performed without remuneration during normal weekday hours.

The Director of Education determines eligibility in consultation with the Program Supervisor or Placement Coordinator. Eligibility is based on the student’s readiness for externship placement as evidenced by general academic practical performance, professional demeanor, and attendance compliance.
