Your professors understand how important it is for students to learn by doing and seeing. Often, they will build in opportunities for experiential learning within the overall four-year curriculum and also in their individual courses. These can take many different forms such as:

  • clinical experiences
  • problem-solving exercises
  • service learning experiences
  • laboratories
