About

In this two-year program, the student learning experience equally involves classroom learning, hands-on participation, and clinical rotations. 

Overview

In this two-year program, the student learning experience equally involves classroom learning, hands-on participation, and clinical rotations. While the first year is more heavily weighted toward classroom learning, students begin to have clinical patient interactions in their first semester. During the second year, the balance shifts away from classroom learning and toward a richer clinical experience.
All students enrolled in the program spend their first academic year in Sioux Falls, whereas second-year students train in either Sioux Falls or San Diego, California. Students in both locations are connected with each other through technology and frequent communication.
