Clinical: The approximate hours are 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM four days a week. The student may be assigned to one and possibly two sites. The specific daily hours are determined in conjunction with the needs and availability of the medical office as well as the program and accreditation requirements of 30 hours/week. Evening students are encouraged to make themselves available during day time hours for Externship as most facilities are not open or do not have the supervisory or support staff to adequately mentor a student. An attempt will be made if an evening student cannot participate during day time hours, however the minimum hours must still be met and abbreviated availability will prolong the externship component.
