Examples of Training Plans

 


Hypothetical Examples



The examples below are sample programs, designed to provide ideas to students who may apply to our program.  These examples represent rotations that interns have done in the past.  Please keep in mind that available rotations and experiences change from year to year based on faculty availability and changes in ongoing projects.  Please see our current list of Specific Training Opportunities for experiences available during the upcoming internship year.   A student does not need to have the details of the program for his/her year articulated to apply, but does need to indicate a specific area of emphasis for the year.
