In addition to classroom theory and skills practice in campus laboratory, clinical experience is provided in a variety of medical centers and health care agencies in the Bay Area.
The Program starts every Fall semester in mid August. Completion of prerequisite courses at 3.0 grade point average is required for admission to the program.
