Clinical Education

Affiliation agreements with leading health care facilities across the region provide our students with breadth and depth of experience.

Students are assigned to off-site affiliates during their clinical residency. Each rotation lasts four weeks. A number of clinical sites are outside the Kansas City metropolitan area and students are normally required to attend many of these out-of-town affiliations while in the program.

The following chart lists the current clinical sites and highlights the type of clinical experiences afforded the student at each site.
