Externship Clinics

The externships our students can become involved with provide them excellent learning experiences, and our patients can take advantage of them as well! Off-site clinics have the power to change the way a patient thinks, as well as how a student practices, broadening and enhancing views on the application of the medicine. They also offer students an opportunity to integrate with other medical practitioners, and influence the perception those medical practitioners have of our profession.

For more information about these offsite clinics, please call our main campus clinic: (619) 574-6932
