Outpatient students are not required to attend orientation at our main campus, but will be required to complete orientation tasks at their affiliation site. Students have the opportunity to attend a student luncheon that is sponsored monthly at the main campus during which time they can opt to spend the day observing at the hospital. Also, observation of surgery, and shadowing physicians can be arranged.
