Our off-campus clinical sites provide students with excellent learning experiences, and if an off-site provides services appropriate to the individual, patients may choose to use their services. 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.
