Clinical Practicum

In the last semester of the senior year, students are placed at a practice site based on their clinical interest, clinical strengths, and preference of geographical location. UNH is one of the few programs nationally to have an extensive senior level clinical practicum.  Our students are highly regarded by the health care institutions where they do their senior experience, with many offered positions at that institution.  Students are placed in hospitals, clinics, community health agencies, or other health care settings in New Hampshire, the Boston area, or Maine.
