The Program Structure

Our program is 5 semesters long and leads to a bachelor of science or a bachelor of professional studies degree. The program can only be taken on a full- time basis. We admit a limited number of students each year so that all of our students receive close, personal attention. Beginning in the fall only, the program includes five consecutive semesters of classroom and clinical courses.

Starting after the junior spring break, students complete 44 weeks of clinical outside the Central NY area, e.g. in Buffalo, Capital/Hudson Valley, Rochester, the North Country or Southern Tier. Students request these regions at the time of interview and a decision about region assignments are made by the Admissions Committee at the time of acceptance. A student will be in their assigned region for nearly all of the 44 weeks, however, they can request individual rotations outside of their region to work with different equipment, however placement will depend on availability. Students who are in the Central NY region will always be out of the greater Syracuse area during their last six weeks of clinical.
