Clinical Externship: 20 Credits

Clinical Externship:
The clinical externship requirement may be fulfilled by attending and successfully completing pre-approved trainings, seminars, mentor or apprenticeship programs nationally or internationally. In order to receive credit the student must receive a satisfactory pass or certificate of completion from the preceptor and document all clinical training/patients. All clinicals must be pre-approved by the student’s Dean.

If the student finds it impossible to fulfill the above requirements or already have their own practice then they may apply for a special exception. This exception will require that the student submit documentation in the form of either case studies, a research paper and/or other representation of how they have integrated these modalities or course of study into their existing practice. The last alternative would be to complete a research study in the particular science or modality.
For complete description of clinical training see course description for NM 650. Clinical may begin after completion of the student’s final Module, or with approval of the Dean for earlier commencement)
