Clinical Experience

• Freshmen have the opportunity to visit a variety of Health Care delivery providers.
• Sophomores serve as volunteers at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, rotating through the departments.
• Juniors research, create a grant proposal designed around identified community needs & deliver a service project.
• Seniors participate in an eight-week Mentorship program.  They work side by side with a professional for nine hours a week providing services for clients or patients.  At the conclusion of the Mentorship, each student delivers a multimedia presentation to a seminar of peers, parents and mentors.  This summative exposition helps the student gain perspective on their field experience and informs other students on the variety and scope of health professions.


Visual & Performing Arts

The Visual & Performing Arts program provides an alternate approach to traditional classroom seat time. The program consists of a series of activities to engage students in a deeper learning and appreciation of the Visual & Performing Arts. 
Students keep accurate records of assignments and store them upon request in a folder on the school file server.
