Our syllabus is constantly under revision as are most syllabi in any kind of academic program. As such, and particularly due to the adjustments required by the pandemic, we do not provide our syllabi until an Intern has been enrolled in our Program.
We have developed our curriculum in such a way as to allow the Intern to fully participate in the regular activities of the particular site that they are at. In short, the Intern should be doing what the preceptor is doing, albeit at a pre-entry level.
You will be at your site full time Monday through Thursday and at your desk full time on Fridays for the 25 weeks (1000 hours) of the Internship. You should plan to work the same schedule that your Preceptor works on Monday through Thursday.
Since we have no idea of what the status of the pandemic will be at that time, we are not prepared to approve completely virtual experiences for our class starting in January. For informational purposes, all of our sixty Interns who will be starting in September 2020, will be starting at their sites.
Since we consider your entire application and not just parts of it, we cannot advise prior to your application as to whether your graduate work or experience demonstrates that you have closed the gaps created by weak performance in your DPD Program.
We do not provide contact information for potential Preceptors unless you are already matched to our Program. Preceptors have not given us permission to give out their information. If we did that, Preceptors would be overwhelmed by applicants calling or emailing and this would create a real problem for them.
