We strngly suggest that students d nt wrk mre than 20 hurs per week during the semesters. This is an individual decisin, and as such each student shuld carefully cnsider this recmmendatin prir t applying t the prgram. Students must keep the entire clinical day free since hurs vary between day, night and evening shifts. What will I need t be a student in this prgram?
