IDPT 7001, Integrated Clinicians Course 1

Transition to Clerkships


Integrated Clinicians Course 1​ (ICC 1) provides students with fundamental skills, including presentation and procedural, for their clinical rotations. The course is composed of hands-on workshops, small and large group sessions, on-line tutorials, and independent work. We have also integrated many logistical tasks which are non-curricular but are best accomplished when all students are together.

Attendance is mandatory and make up assignments will be required for all absences.
