Clinical rotations present an exceptional win-win situation for both the University of Mount Union students and physicians in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. The PA program offers hands-on training at over 300 locations, including Alliance Community Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic and Mercy Medical Center.
In August of their second year, students begin 12 months of clinical rotations at area doctors’ offices, hospitals and clinics upon completion of the 15-month didactic phase, which includes learning the basics of biomedical science and clinical medicine through coursework and lab experiences.
Mount Union’s wide range of clinical rotations gives students the chance to put what they have learned in the classroom into practice. Seeing cases firsthand they have only read about in textbooks, coming up with treatments for conditions and building professional relationship with patients, Mount Union’s competent, medically trained individuals are prepared and skilled to use their knowledge in the field.
Students may also select two elective rotations in an area of their choice, such as orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, ENT, palliative medicine, dermatology, endocrinology, radiology, cardiology and pulmonology to name a few.
