Our Courses

Our programs focus on exposing our students to a broad spectrum of clinical scenarios in order to elicit a good understanding of patient care. Our students are trained in both simulated and live-patient settings to achieve clinical competency based on our standards of excellence. Most importantly, the coursework includes theoretical concepts crucial to understanding the important details of patient care. As a result, our trainees become skilled, qualified allied health professionals in order to be independent in their future responsibilities in the healthcare industry.
