Getting Great Clinical Exposure

Students are encouraged to get both professional-facing and patient-facing time in clinical settings, as these experiences help confirm that your chosen health profession is a good fit with both your interests and skills.

The Career Center provides an extensive list of health-related volunteer opportunities in the Puget Sound area here. The key for all of this (building your experience and network) is about being proactive, patient and following through with your communication and commitments.
