Clinical experiences are more than an item to cross off your health professional school application requirements. The right experiences build your confidence and give you an edge in your post-graduate studies and beyond.
By volunteering, job shadowing, or conducting research, Furman students gain insight into their profession of interest—before they even graduate. Develop a better understanding of patient-doctor relationships. Test your commitment to the field. Or evaluate your career goals. No matter your path, a clinical experience will help you find your passion and determine your strengths.
If you need assistance in finding the right experience, the Institute for the Advancement of Community Health can help. They can assist you in coordinating clinical observations, internships, and research initiatives with Prisma Health and other health care facilities. They can also provide you with the tools to create your own experience. Start by filling out a Healthcare and Clinical Experience Interest Form.
As Prisma Health's primary undergraduate partner, Furman works with the hospital system to develop observation and research programs that actively engage students in health care.
