What You Can Anticipate During Your Clinical Externship

Gain Practical Experience Before Graduation

Pima Medical Institute programs include hands-on clinical externships that enhance your skills and readiness for a smooth entry into the professional world after graduation.

Learn from experts, engage with patients

In your clinical externship, professionals from diverse settings such as hospitals, clinics, doctor's offices, pharmacies, and veterinary offices will provide mentorship. This is your chance to apply classroom-acquired skills in real-world scenarios.

In the context of externships, this entails achieving a passing evaluation from your externship site, which is pivotal for attaining your certificate or degree.

Additionally, your externship provides an ideal platform to exhibit your professional competencies and uphold exemplary conduct standards. This encompasses traits such as punctuality, meticulousness, professionalism, empathy, and a positive demeanor.
