Clinical Experience

Professional school admissions committees want evidence that you know what you're getting into. They want you to have a first-hand understanding of day-to-day activities in the health-care profession you aspire to join. Spending time shadowing a physician, dentist or veterinarian, working on a volunteer ambulance crew, completing paid or volunteer work at a hospital, nursing home or hospice will prove crucial. The experience also will allow you to confirm your goal to become a health-care professional.

SUNY Brockport students are fortunate to have access to local health-care facilities that offer a variety of clinical settings with options for volunteer — and in some cases — paid positions. Letters of recommendation from the professionals you interact with provide strong support for you applications for admissions.
