Outside the Classroom

You’ll spend your senior year taking classes and working in an active hospital setting. You’ll work with hospital staff to provide lab results that physicians will use to diagnose, treat, and monitor patient progress.

You’ll rotate through various areas of the hospital: Clinical Microbiology, Blood Bank, Immunology, Education and Management, Clinical Chemistry, and more.

The best part? Because they’ve spent time training you, most hospitals hire the students who complete the full fourth year successfully.
