Hands-On Education

Our students gain the most from their coursework during their job shadowing period. We have an abundance of trusted relationships with local physicians, dentists, pharmacists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, podiatrists and optometrists in order to provide exposure to your chosen field before beginning a graduate program. The Body & Soul shadowing experience provides opportunities and practice incorporating your call to serve others into your professional choices, observing a Christian healthcare professional for maximum preparation.
