Curriculum

THE PROGRAM STRUCTURE

Request Info.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 can complete 44 weeks of clinical outside the Central NY area, e.g. in Buffalo, Capital/Hudson Valley, Rochester and/or the Northern or Southern Tier. Students request these options at the time of interview. A student can request individual rotations outside of their primary region to work with different equipment.
