Appointments are made between August 1st and late February. The applicant will:

These are forms you must sign indicating your understanding of what the school expects of its students professionally, academically, mentally, and physically. Observation times fill up quickly, therefore, you are encouraged to submit your application as soon as possible.
Step #2: Information Session
All applicants meeting the admission requirements and submitting their application on or before the deadline will be required to attend an information session offered 1-2 weeks following the application deadline. This information session will provide an opportunity to learn about program course work, clinical expectations of our program, and the applicant will be given the opportunity to ask questions of current students and faculty. Attending an information session is MANDATORY for all applicants; please contact the program if there is a conflict with the published date/time.

Step #3: Interview
The interview will be with the program faculty, a student representative, and the Advisory Board. Acceptance to the program will be decided by the highest average scores. The number of applicants chosen for acceptance will vary based on the overall number of clinical spots available each year. The interviews will evaluate areas such as scholastics, written and oral communication, maturity, character qualities, professional demeanor, and desire. All applicants will be notified of the program’s decision for enrollment as soon as possible. Those applicants not initially selected for the program may become alternates. Alternates will be ranked based on the average of the interview score. In the event an accepted student declines to attend, the position will be offered to the first alternate, and so on.
The interview date will be provided to all applicants 3-4 weeks prior to the interview.
