Ph.D. Advanced Clinical Standing Applicants
Advanced Clinical Standing
Applicants admitted to the Ph.D. program may, prior to enrollment, petition to take the Clinical Qualifying Examination normally scheduled at the end of the first clinical internship. Passing this examination, which is the same as the oral and written exam normally given at the end of the first internship, qualifies the applicant to waive one year of clinical internship. However, all three summers of academic coursework are typically required.
