Concentrated Practicum

Practice your skills in the field


The concentrated practicum allows you to apply your studies in a professional setting that aligns best with your goals.

You will work with the course instructor and practicum site to determine the details of the 75-hour commitment. The work activities are structured based on your interest and decided learning outcomes, with appropriate evaluation mechanisms determined by the site facilitator and the course instructor.

Areas of focus include the following:

  • Student teaching in clinical, laboratory, and didactic settings
  • Research
  • Public health
  • Consumer Advocate
  • Publishing
  • Administrative
