The College of Rehabilitation Sciences is stepping up its efforts in providing quality clinical internship opportunities to its students with the signing of an agreement with the School of Health and Medical Sciences of Seton Hall University in New Jersey, USA.
Through the agreement, both schools commit to provide clinical exposures to their students in the areas of Athletic Training, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, Physical Therapy, and Speech-Language Pathology. The international internships will be for a minimum of three weeks on a full time basis for SHU students, while for DLSHSI students, the duration of the internship will be six weeks.
