Tours of Clinical Affiliate Sites

Tours of all the clinical affiliate sites will be scheduled in February or March.

Interviews with Clinical Education Coordinators

Some of the Clinical Education Coordinators will conduct interviews at UWM with the applicants in March & April.

Clinical Placements

After your interview with the Clinical Education Coordinators, you will submit a list ranking all the clinical sites in order of your preference. Each Clinical Education Coordinator will submit a list ranking students by preference. These lists will be submitted to the Undergraduate Program Director.

Final decisions on assignments are made by the Department of Biomedical Sciences. Clinical assignments will be posted at the start of the summer semester and are subject to change up to the time that training begins.

Eligibility is conditional, that is you must complete the required coursework and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in all of the Biomedical Sciences courses.
